1 serving = 103 g (1 medium)
Firm, unblemished fruit, yellow to red in colour.
Refrigerate ripe fruits unwashed up to 5 days. Ripe prickly pears are red all over. Ripen fruits at room temperature.
Peel skin back and scoop out fruit to puree or slice using rubber gloves. Peeled fruit can be frozen. Sprinkle with lemon or lime juice to accent flavour. Use in fruit salads or as a garnish with meat dishes. Sweet, juicy texture like watermelon and pear like taste.
