P-P-P-Piglet Prickly Pear

A couple of weeks ago, B and I took a Sunday afternoon trip to the lighthouse. The prickly pears were blooming. Actually, I guess that would be “fruiting,” as the blooms are gone now.

This cactus reminded me of Piglet from the Winnie the Pooh stories.

Are those edible? And, if so, have you tried them?
