    Description

Opuntia joconostle - Tuna Blanca

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds of this prickly pear

A native of Mexico, this a medium sized prickly pear reaching 3 metres in height and a similar spread.  It has a tree-like form, with a trunk (formed of fused pads up to 20 cm in diameter) and a crown of pads on top that branch off.  The flowers are yellow, carried in spring and summer, followed by edible fruits.  It has unequal spines which are white in colour, giving rise to the common name (tuna or tunas is a local name for all padded opuntias and blanca refers to the white spines).

Young plants require a degree of shade and protection from the sun as they normally develop in the shade of another plant until they push through the cover or the shade plant dies (as in the case of a mature cactus).  This need should be observed even in the higher latitudes to protect seedlings from becoming scorched and stunted.

Easy to germinate and grow on, full instructions can be found by going to my 'ME' page and following the links there.
