Photographer's Note

The prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) is the fruit of the prickly pear, a shrub of the family Cactaceae, which grows wild in temperate and warm different areas of the world.
The prickly pear can be found at the market fresh and preserved (usually jam, jam or marmalade).

The best time to buy figs are the summer months, however, if they are in zone "setback figs is also possible to obtain during the winter months and, according to tradition, of better quality.

To check whether a fresh fig has reached its peak of maturity is necessary to understand the diversity of colors shown in different stages. If they are destined for fresh consumption are harvested when still have shades of green, yellow or orange. When it becomes bright red past its ideal maturity and seeds are too large for consumption.

In the town of Benissa you can find plenty of cacti, such as this, which I offered to drop the sun an accurate picture to share with you.
