Here's a picture of the fruit currently. They are close to ripe, a few weeks and they'll be ready to use. They have a very sweet taste already just not the color yet.

So I have never had prickly pear fruit but after looking it up it sounds AMAZING. If you get any extra I would love to get enough for a batch. I'm in Columbus oh so I don't really have anything to trade. There is some pawpaw fruit I'm going to try and find. If I find some I would gladdy mail you some.

They'll be mostly red through the flesh typically. That also depends on the type that they are. I'd say harvest one every week until the end of September or so and start harvesting when they taste right to you. The ones in the picture could be used now but they will ripen up more.

I am not trying to rain on this, but I have had a Prickly Pear wine. I dumped that glass. Worst wine ive had and that is saying something. lol

Some winery here in Texas had done a batch and was selling it. Not sure if they ever sold any. Just a word of warning.
