Info

Yes! A 'unprickled' prickly pear! A hardy, very shapely padded cacti that likes a warm spot in baking sun and awful soil…grows 4-5' high and wide in 3-4 years – a good size for even smaller gardens! Big 4" glowing yellow flowers in summer – and yummy, no hurt-em-hands red spineless pears soon after – well drained soil is a must in winter – a Luther Burbank introduction.
