Are there any types of cactus that you cannot eat?

    These are two types of cactus whose fruit is purely ornanmental (inedible).  These are: Agave americana and Aloe vera.  In terms of the actual plant portion of the cactus, cholla cacti are unpalatable, while prickly pear cacti are good for the eating.

    There are so many different kinds of cactus, so I think it’d be easier to remember you can definitely eat the pads  (nopales) and fruit of the prickly pear. If you’re curious about a specific kind of cactus, the second link will tell you about dozens of different kinds.
