We have nopal cactus and they produce what is called an apple or prickly pear. Our cacti are full of red fruit this year and I was told I could make jam with them. The knowing when to harvest the fruit and how to prepare it for jam have become major questions I can't seem to find answers for. Sooo help! I hope you can al least share how to tell if it is ripe and how to harvest it.
Thank you for any information you can share.
