Variegated Prickly Pear

Prickly Pears are a favorite the world over because, once they get large enough, you can harvest the leaves and eat them! They're absolutely delicious, and in many places, prickly pear juice is a hot commodity.

Care for prickly pears is that signature, easy cactus care: water very infrequently, make sure the soil doesn't stay wet, and give it as much light as you can! The more light it gets, the bigger its leaves will get (and the more you'll have to eat if you decide to harvest it in the future!).
