Prickly Pear Cactus Pad from Texas. Genus Opuntia, but I do not know which species and I have several kinds on my property. Produce pretty yellow flowers and edible fruit (tunas.) Can be grown outdoors in warm climates, is cold hardy down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit, and makes an excellent container plant. The pads are already aged and ready for planting! Planting instructions included with each order.
