- Coastal Prickly Pear, Opuntia littoralis, San Diego, California The prickly pear cactus refers to a group of cacti species under the Opuntia genus, a genus native to the Western hemisphere. Prickly pears have flat, rounded cladodes (what we think of as leaves on these plants) that are armed with two kinds of spines: large, smooth, fixed spikes and small, hairlike prickles called glochids, that easily penetrate skin and detach from the plant. The large spines are for macro damage against large animals that try to touch the plant, and the small glochids are for causing micro damage to irritate animals that try to eat the cladodes. The prickly pear cactus is one of the iconic plants of deserts in the Americas. In many survival videos and shows it has been demonstrated that most of the plant is edible after you carefully process the cladodes with a hunting knife to get rid of the outer layer, and with it, the glochids. Fire is the preferred method of getting rid of all spines while simultaneously sterilizing the meal. The taste of the cladode "meat" has been compared to cucumber.
- cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) Nagfani video by Shirishkumar Patil.mpg A cactus (plural: cacti, cactuses or cactus) is a member of the plant family Cactaceae. Their distinctive appearance is a result of adaptations to conserve water in dry and/or hot environments. In most species, the stem has evolved to become photosynthetic and succulent, while the leaves have evolved into spines. Many species are used for ornamental plants, and some are also grown for fodder, forage, fruits, cochineal, and other uses. Cacti come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. The tallest is Pachycereus pringlei, with a maximum recorded height of 19.2 m, and the smallest is Blossfeldia liliputiana, only about 1 cm in diameter at maturity. Cactus flowers are large, and like the spines arise from distinctive features called areoles.

- Opuntia Ficus Indica Opuntia ficus-indica is a specie of cactus. It is crop-plant with a high importance in the agriculture of arid and semiarid parts of the world. Opuntia is farmed mainly as a fruit harvest, but also for the vegetable nopales and other uses. Most culinary references to the "prickly pear cactus" are citing to this species. The name "tuna" is also employed for the fruit from this cactus, and for Opuntia generally (according to Alexander von Humboldt, it was a word with Haitian origin admitted into the Spanish speech circa 1500AD) Opuntia has various medicinal uses - including being used as a hangover cure. Lately, extracts for the cactus pear fruit has demonstrated to have antioxidative attributes and can cause decrease of DNA damage in human peripheral lymph cells. This extract has become a possible source of raw material for pharmaceutic and operational food industries.  The shoots of O. ficus-indica have been shown to contain at least some mescaline. The plant is considered a pest species in parts of the Mediterranean due to its ability to spread rapidly beyond the zones it was originally cultivated in. In Hebrew, the plant is referred to as "tzabar." The flowers and stems are antispasmodic, diuretic and emollient. The split stems have been bound around injured limbs as a first aid measure. The flowers are astringent and are used to reduce bleeding and treat problems of the gastro-intestinal tract, especially diarrhoea, colitis and irritable bowel ...
