@Diane Lane, that ice cream looks more like our dragon fruit than a prickly pear. I don't know prickly pear, not a hint that it can be eaten although my husband had already mentioned that it is edible. Now, here is the puzzle. This thread reminded us of a picture of my husband with a prickly pear cactus. We had gone to a more likely it is in a resort, a beach resort maybe. But until now, we cannot place it where and worse, we cannot find that particular picture. It was shot just recently, not more than 3 years ago. Maybe we have been traveling too much and too often that our memories get jumbled.
