Cactus Leaves or Nopales (noh-POH-lays) are leaves which stem from the large Mexican cactus nopal. Often found growing throughout Mexico where they have long been favored, Cactus Leaves are also gaining acceptance in the United States.

Available year-round, Cactus Leaves are at their peak in the spring when their tender paddles impart a juicy, "string bean" flavor and range in color from pale to dark green.

Nopalitos are Cactus Leaves that are diced or cut into small pieces or strips, simmered in water until tender. Nopalitos can be added to a variety of dishes including salads and eggs.

Nopalitos are hand-selected for excellent quality and packaged fresh with no preservatives, so little preparation is required. Store refrigerated up to one week.
