    Hi guys. A neighbor just gave me this cactus, which I think should be edible opuntia, but it's a little more elongated than I'm used to seeing, so I figured I'd make sure. Safe to feed? 20170913_193524.jpg 20170913_193533.jpg

    Thank you for your replies! That is excellent news, in that case I'll try to grow it and propagate it to have a permanent opuntia source :D
