Cactus Pears come from several varieties of cactus and are also sometimes called prickly pear or Indian fig. Extremely popular in Mexico and Central and South America, the purple-red and sometimes green, prickly skin of the cactus pear can be peeled away to expose a soft, ruby-red or golden colored flesh with tiny, edible seeds. Cactus Pears are usually served cold, peeled and sectioned with the seeds and served in fruit salads or they can be sprinkled with brown sugar, lime juice and topped with whipped cream to create a unique dessert.
