The prickly pear is a species of cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) thought to have originated in Mexico, in Fuerteventura the fruit is called tunos.

Beneath the thorns and skin the fruit is an intense red and orange in colour and in taste resembles strawberries and figs.

Tunos are eaten raw, or cooked, and also Jams and jellies are produced from them. Look out for Tunos at the craft and agricultural markets on Fuerteventura.

Mexicans have used Opuntia for thousands of years to make an alcoholic drink called colonche.
