Egg-shaped fruit with leathery green-yellow / orange skin and orange-yellow flesh containing small black seeds. It contains valuable vitamins of group B and vitamin C, as well as calcium.
Taste: The meat under the spiny skin is delicately sweet, refreshingly juicy and reminiscent of the flavor of the pears.
In addition to being eaten, prickly pears are suitable as a starter for poultry or ham, with smoked trout and crustaceans. Pureed meat can be used as a base for sorbets, creams and sauces. Due to its appetizing color, it is also popular as a side dish for meat dishes and desserts. Its flavors stand out especially in fruit salads and creamy desserts.
