Originating from Mexico, the Opuntia Microdasy is a unique looking cactus and is known as the Bunny Ear Cactus. It has lots of spikes which are called glochids, these are a pain to get out the skin so you must use gloves or newspaper to handle.
In a post apocalyptic scenario these are the perfect thing to eat if you run out of food. Supposed to taste like cucumber, a common staple of mexican cuisine.
