Prickly Pear Fruit

August is the season that the beautiful red fruit of the prickly pear cactus ripens. Join us in harvesting this fruit, seeing demonstrations of how to render juice from it, and in preparing nopalitos, the tender prickly pear pads which have been a Mexican staple for over a millennia. We will learn about the cochineal insect, which bestowed the deep red color unto the Spanish kings' robes, as well as other natural history bits surrounding the nopal.
