The cactus in Mexico are everywhere. We have highest diversity of cactus. We ate some of their fruits: tunas and pitayas, we have it in our flag, we hate the "cactus leafs" called here Nopales. People collect them and you can find them almost in every street market. Also there is a store that sells cactus in a nice package to gave them as a gift. Usually a boyfriend gave it to his girlfriend or viceversa.

so rudy you like nopales and they are good for you, yes?, I think the nopales are a larger version of our prickle pear cati, our prickle pears don't get very tall because of the winters here but my grandmother keep one as a house plant for years. they carried it in side the house in winter. it grew to be 8 feet tall and my grandfather and my uncle said no more will we carry that thing into the house this winter. my uncle chopped it down with a ax. i think it was 15 years old at that time.
