I'm digging them a lot actually, other than getting pricked :) But they are beautiful. Not sure of the variety, but I did an image search for cholla and it looks fairly similar. They are long and tube like.

I have a ton of succulents, but this will be my first proper cactus plant. I can't wait to see how they look once they start to really take root and flourish.

Peruvian Apple Cactus is my fave cactus.

That looks nice. Have you tried the fruit of one? I've seen some cactus fruit at a local produce shop near me, but never tasted it. It looks a little different than image search is showing me for the Peruvian Apple Cactus.

Yeah they're much better than pitayas and opuntias. It tastes like sorbet. Those other 2 are fun to grow too though.

Pitaya is tasty, but it's super expensive where I live and there's only one place that I know that has them. No one else in my house likes them, so buying one or two for myself from time to time works out.

I'll have to be on the look out for the Peruvian Apple, I may have actually seen that in the produce shop before now that I look at the images more.
