Opuntia erinacea

Very sharp spines - like needles !

I understand these are nice to eat. Is that correct. It looks like what I had in Africa, but not sure if it's the same plant.

It's the berries that are edible. They're called 'prickly pears' but have to be peeled carefully to get rid of the spines.
