So I've been eyeing my favorite prickly pear patches lately and they're coming in nice and red again this year. I should have some nice ripe ones in another month or so. If anyone is interested, I still would like to trade prickly pears for other fruit, honey or brewing supplies. I'm not looking to make money, just get some southwest fruit out to some of those who don't have access to them. I can get right around 9 lbs of prickly pears in a standard flat rate USPS box that ships anywhere in the continental US for $10.70. I did a number of these trades last year with members and no one was dissapointed. PM me if you're interested.

Thanks,
GTG

I have never had a prickly pear I would love to try some. We grow lots of apples up here in Ny. I could easily send as much as you want around October. I picked over 500 lbs last year. Made 40 gallons of hard cider. I have also shipped some spruce tips to a couple guys on here for a beer recipe, I have those easily available as well.

What kind of apples? I suppose they're good no matter what kind if you've made cider from them?

I would still be interested in the prickly pears if you still have some.

Any chance you could ship a few pads so I could try growing them up this way? I've got some standard blended honey if you're interested.
