It burst open today! This is the peeled fruit. The #sparkles are lovely. It is more about texture than flavor. Very subtle, but fun like chewing poppy seeds with watermelon texture. #cactus #cereus #cereusperuvianus #cereusrepandus #southerncalifornia 24 September 2019

@janetandjim - Janet, I have sunburns on some of the leaves of the Copper Spoon, but it seems really happy there. I live in So. Cal, so my weather keeps me from having the hard work you all do who live in such harsh climates. Thank you so much for you compliment. 💞
Yes, @mardel. They can have amazing blossoms. Some are huge and only last one night and are pollinated by moths. Others close at night, only to open again with the sunshine for weeks. I believe the moon cactus may bloom, but I am not sure of the other.
This #peruvian-apple split revealing its many seeds. E is going to grow them for more tiny #cactus. #cereusrepandus #southerncalifornia 11 November 2020
Wow never seen one of those ❤️
Are these edible?
I was wondering if they were edible too?
They are! Really sweet, sort of dry but sweeter than dragon fruit. I planted the seeds and have babies sprouting now. https://youtu.be/alDzJ76WC6s
The YouTube link https://youtu.be/alDzJ76WC6s is me cutting my #peruvian-apple and you can see the babies in my feed ☺️ @juliesgarden @KariSamuel @gjones
@fearlessthereforepowerful - Thank you!
Pretty aren't they @juliesgarden?!
Yes, @KariSamuel and @gjones, just like @fearlessthereforepowerful said. Thank you, Christine. I think textured like dry watermelon. I have sprouted some before. They are too cute.
Oh! Perfect description!
Thank you @fearlessthereforepowerful 💕
So in a smoothie or a cocktail 🍸 with rum or vodka? 😋 @lovestogarden @fearlessthereforepowerful @gjones
