Default Prickly pear, powder?

I am wanting to make a prickly pear mead. Michigan is not conducive to cacti growth. Is there a reputable online vendor, i.e. the bean guy on eBay is great for vanilla beans.

Also, i have seen prickly pear powder. Ay thoughts on this?

Thx.

I've not looked online but depending on how close you are to a large metropolitan area you can often find them in grocery stores. I see them every now and again in stores that have a large hispanic/mexican customer base. That is the fresh fruits, at least. The few times when I lived where they grew and have used them in any form of recipe they tend to have a more subdued flavor than one would expect. Taste them if you can, I would use large quantities of them as they are largely seeds and pith.
