The desert is famous for its stickers and stabers and venom sharing dwellers but it also has a lot of good things growing if you know where to look. Ever wonder why the Prickly Pear cactus is named that way? See the red fruits on this one? Shaped like prickly little red pears? Get it? They are delicious! OH, and this prickly pear is called "cow's tongue" for it long paddles.
