31/08/19 - I think this is the right ID for this cactus? Opuntia ficus-indica has apparently naturalised around parts of the Mediterranean so that would fit. Saw these today along the coastal areas and hills near our resort on Rhodes, with lots of fruits on them which are edible. They were huge! 🌵 #opuntia #opuntia-ficusindica #opuntiaficusindica #barbaryfig #holidayfind #greece 🇬🇷 #notmygarden

@columbiariver 😂🦖 maybe those fruits are not really fruits but eggs and about to hatch! 😳

Sure was Sue - apparently you can eat the fruits, not quite sure what they taste like, but I think I’ll leave them be 😂😉 @suerichards
