Taste one of the fruits when they're ripe, Ray. After removing the areoles, of course. See what you think the flavour is.

Not at all! :smile: Tasty, if small.
Opuntia fruits are available in supermarkets, though species with larger fruits than salmniana. To me, it had a distinct flavour, but I won't tell you - you'll have to find out yourself.
