Best way to eat Peruvian cactus apple?
« on: November 13, 2018, 10:29:44 AM »
My neighbor has what I'm pretty sure is a Peruvian apple cactus. Here's a fruit from it:


The fruit got overripe and split while it was still on the cactus.


Is it still edible, since it never touched the ground? Do I just scrape away that part? Can the fruit be eaten just like a dragonfruit—separate the pulp from the peel and you're good to go? Or is it more like a prickly pear that has tons of inedible seeds in it?
