All good points mentioned above. That's right, the ones I picked from were ready in August/September.

Also ... if you make wine with it ... make sure you boil the juice for 30 minutes or so. I made that mistake last year, just using unprocessed juice. I think I termed it "Barney Snot" ... let's see here ...


Yep, Barney Snot.

Also, just like GTG offered, I'd be more than willing to discuss trades for local fruit and/or honey in exchange for prickly pear. Once the season is upon us, I will gladly grab what I can. Drop me a PM if you would like anything. GTG would, I'm sure, be more than willing to do it - so I'll handle any overflow that he can't handle.
