Gave the adult Hermann tortoises some very ripe cactus fruit today and it was a big hit. Picture 005 copy.jpg I think they can smell better than people give them credit for. the girl was out sunning early so I picked her some food and added some fruit. A couple minutes later the boy came out of his heated crock to get some also. Picture 010 copy.jpg

I never think to harvest the tunas from the opuntia plants. Thanks for the reminder.

I have been growing opuntia plants for over 50 years and had never tasted one. I have a bowl of them setting on the counter next to the sink and last night while doing dishes I decided to eat one. Not as sweet as I expected, Not bad but I thought it to be sweeter.
