Thornless Prickly Pear is a thornless edible evergreen succulent where the pad, flower petals, and pears can be eaten.  The fleshy pads are medium green and the showy yellow flower blooms in summer.  Prefers full sun and well-drained soil.  While thornless, the tiny glochids on the pad can still be irritate the skin- it is best handled between the glochid dots.

Like Aloe, the skinned pads of the Thornless Prickly Pear can be used topically for wounds, burns, and edema.  It can also be drank as a tea to treat various lung ailments and reduce fever.*

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
