Inside Out: Prickly Pear

Photos by Matt Ball

You guessed it! These photos show the internal structure of prickly pear pads. Some species can grow quite tall. These photos are most likely of Engelmann Prickly Pear (Opuntia engelmannii var. engelmannii), but the various Opuntia species look similar on the inside, too.
