Mexican Strawberry


Mexican Strawberry -

The fruit of a member of the Echinocactus or Hedgehog Cactus family, of salmon color, about two inches long and one inch in diameter. It is much sweeter than the ordinary Cactus fruit and the entire pulp is readily eaten, as the seeds, unlike those of the Prickly Pear, are as small as strawberry seeds.

The Hedgehog Cactus takes its name from the long spines which cover its generally globose or oval body. The plants often reach enormous size and many of them bear large showy flowers of great beauty. The spines are used in Mexico as toothpicks and for various other purposes.
