Opuntia ficus-indica
Opuntia, also known as nopales or paddle cactus, is a genus in the cactus family, Cactaceae. Opuntia ficus-indica has been introduced to Europe, and flourishes in areas with a suitable climate, such as the southern Spain. The fruit of prickly pears, commonly called cactus fig or "chumbo fig" (higo chumbo) in Spanish, is edible, although it has to be peeled carefully to remove the small spines on the outer skin before consumption
