Courtney Fisher Saguaro fruit
Saguaro fruit commented on by Courtney Fisher Tucson, Arizona, USA11 years ago

As far as I've seen, saguaro fruits aren't sold commercially like prickly pear fruits are. They could probably be found for sale on a Native American Reservation though. I have tried them once and have had various products made out of them. They are very much like prickly pears, a sweet soft flesh with many tiny seeds on the inside. Since the saguaro is endangered, it isn't legal to harvest the fruit of saguaros that are on public property.

And I agree with you, I love learning more about the saguaro! It seems like the Sonoran Desert is full of amazing plants!

Bernadette- People do snack on this fruit! The native people have used the Saguaro fruit as a main source of nutrition for many years. To this day, it is used in various ways!

Changed it to focus on the saguaros prominent in this photograph. Hope it's okay now, thank you!
