Looking for prickly pear seeds / cuttings


CLW

Recommended Posts

I haven't looked in a while, but you might try

The Banana Tree in Penn. USA. They also have

the seed for algve<sp> for tequila.

I got my mesquite seed there which my BIL cut

down not knowing what it was. Like I cut down

some of the wife's vegtables.

Just curious; dragon fruit is an oversized prickly pear with less annoying seeds, why not go for dragon fruit?

 

Do dragon fruit have the same medical benefits for diabetes? Mostly from the nopales.

The pic is from Native Seed Search

Having seen how prickly pear has become anun-ger-riddable- of weed in North Africa, and an unpleasnt one at that, I dont think I shoud want one in my garden unless planted in a concrete pipe or similar

I grew up in San Jose yn the 50's and being the 3rd. largest Mexican population out

of Mexican, we had lots of PP's planted in peoples yards and farms/ranch's.

I was playing around on the web, and saw this in one of the pictures, I believe this

is where drip irrigation came from.

Like any bush or tree, they do beed pruning.

prickly pear is considered a pest weed and should be destroyed.

I'm not sure but I believe there must be different varieties of Opuntia; the one I saw in North Africa was much spinier than the one photographed above, which I also have (!) and isn't a weed at all, up to now anyway. I also didn't realise it was an Opuntia! I just let the smallish fruits fall off.

The Thai "Home Agricultural Magazine" had an article in the past few months about

cactus and talk how they were becoming popular with Thai gardeners. They mention

JJ and said that people were buying from sellers on Facebook, but gave no other info

as to names. I don't do FB or the like, so I don't know how you would search and it would

be in Thai.

Hello All, CLW, sorry the pic's didn't come out, here's a try on the thread.

The first place may have what you want, if not, they maybe able to head

you in the right direction.

The second place only has plants and doesn't do Int. orders, but it took

me a while to remember their name. I've been at their nursery/store several

times before. Use to live E. of Eugene OR.

The AZ store had the lowest prices of seed I saw.

Hello All, I had to do my 90 day at Korat Immi.this past Fri. and on the way back to

town we stopped at this place to get coco shell pieces. On the first soi in and back

down the soi I saw out the corner of my eye as we were headed to the end of the soi,

a 3'--4' high plant, much like the pic of my wife's cousin I posted. I didn't get a chance

to go back and take a better look, I wasn't driving.

 Map of Korat, top arrow is DoHome, second one is the plant place.

Google street view across the hwy. from the place.

Google street view of the entrance, you want back on the L/H side.

Somewhere's between the 2 arrows, +/- 20'.

The end of the soi where I went.
