Indian Pear Cactus

(oil on 24 inch round canvas)
Please click here to bid or purchase: $500.

This is Indian Pear Cactus; a cousin to prickly pear cactus.
The fruit are typically eaten, minus the thick outer skin,
 after chilling in a refrigerator for a few hours. 
They have a taste similar to a juicy, extra sweet watermelon.

This is a round canvas with the painting done to the edges.
It hangs flat on the wall and needs no framing.

Here is the cactus in my yard earlier this year.
My wall is five feet tall, so you can see how big this cactus can grow.

Thank you for viewing my paintings.
