******All of our succulents and cactus are sold STRICTLY for ORNAMENTAL purposes, we do not encourage or suggest eating any opuntia leafs or fruits, to do so is 100% at your own risk. We love them, but your body may not!!!! Talk with your nutritionist/physician if you are considering doing so!!!! Cereus Peruvianus fruits and Opuntia Nopales are the ONLY cactus and succulents that we sell as potential future eating products but again, only after discussing with your healthcare provider!!!!! We are only responsible for selling them as ornamental specimens.
Baby Rita's may be green if fresh growth, will turn purple with growth, and heat and sun.
Each shipped box will contain cuttings from one -three different types of Opuntia/Nopales cuttings . They’ve been cut and dried on the edges and are ready now to be planted. They root very easily and when mature, they’ll produce flowers and fruit.
You can propagate these cuttings by additional cuts or by replanting the seeds as seen in pictures Opuntias, also known as nopales or paddle cactus, is a genus in the cactus family, Cactaceae.
Currently, only prickly pears are included in this genus of about 200 species distributed throughout most of the Americas. Chollas are now separated into the genus Cylindropuntia, which some still consider a subgenus of Opuntia. Austrocylindropuntia, Corynopuntia and Micropuntia are also often included in the present genus, but like Cylindropuntia they seem rather well distinct. Brasiliopuntia and Miqueliopuntia are closer relatives of Opuntia.
The most commonly culinary species is the Indian Fig Opuntia (O. ficus-indica). Most culinary uses of the term “prickly pear” refer to this species. Prickly pears are also known as “tuna”, “nopal” or nopales, from the Nahuatl word nōpalli for the pads, or nostle, from the Nahuatl word nōchtli for the fruit; or paddle cactus. This and similar species are native to Mexico.
