Cactus fig

Cactus figs are oval shaped cactus fruits. The thick prickly skin is full of liquid and protects the flesh. The soft and juicy flesh is slightly sweet and has lots of edible seeds. Our cactus figs have been brushed clean, the thorns have been removed but it is always a good idea to be careful when preparing this cactus fruit.

Growing and harvesting

The first harvest takes place two years after planting. A cactus plant
produces between 15 and 20 fruits annually, repeating the same cycle
every year. Harvesting takes place during the first three months, followed by a resting period of six months and another harvesting period of three months. Cactus figs are ready for harvest when their colour has changed. In some varieties the colour changes from dark green to light green, and in others from light green to orange-yellow or even orange-red. During harvesting cactus figs are cut from the plant one by one with scissors on a weekly basis. Next the cactus figs are brushed clean in the warehouse in order to remove their thorns, after which they are sorted, checked for quality, packaged and prepared for transportation to Nature's Pride.
