Prikli Pear I can't believe you are talking crap about your namesake LOL
I wouldn't say that Prickly Pears are that bland, MUCH better than Dragon Fruit but not as visually stimulating. Yes, the seeds are a pain but it makes pretty good jelly or pancake syrup. The syrup also makes pretty good Margaritas. In case you ever want to process any of those fruit (we call them "tunas" in Spanish), they have NASTY little hairlike thorns. Put them on a stick and burn them with a torch to get rid of those stickers. Then peel them and make juice.
TIKIGIKI I always worry about those "natural predators", look at the Cane Toad there in Australia and the Mongoose in Hawaii. I see they caught a 6 lb Cane Toad last week!
