    Green Cactus pears are made from yellow, red or purple flowers that grow on the prickly pear cactus. This fruit is a ocher yellow or chartreuse inside and out. Encased in a prickly firm shell, it has a seedy pulp that offers a watermelon-like flavor when ripe.  Be careful handling cactus pears. You must hold it with tongs or rubber gloves to prevent penetration of prickly fibers into fingers; gently rinse under cool running water. Cut off ends, slice open end to end and gently peel away the skin of the cactus pear by slipping the tip of a knife under the skin
