Magenta magic

Today’s harvest from the front gate cactus at the little desert casita. Possibly Opuntia engelmannii. 

These fruits are not nearly as sweet and flavorful as the yellow green prickly pears I remember from the Eastern Cape of the Old Country, but dazzle with a brilliant magenta interior. 

I shall make jewel coloured cactus juice from this haul and dream in Technicolor
