The Cactus Fig is a fruit that comes from one of the many varieties of cactus that exist in Latin-America, Mediterranean countries and in other desert regions of the world. The fruit produced in Colombia is oval-shaped and its skin has some very small almost unnoticeable spikes. When it is ripe the colour of its skin changes from green to orange-red. Its pulp is juicy, soft, red-orange in colour and has many edible seeds. The use of gloves or some type of protection is recommended when removing the skin from the fruit.
