The Peruvian apple cactus is a widely adapted, tree-like cactus that produces beautiful, edible fruit. It is native to central South America but its exact area of origin is debated because it was cultivated and distributed by indigenous peoples early on.

This is a highly variable species, which may bear large spines or almost none along its eight vertical ribs. There are no leaves, but the green stems photosynthesize sunlight. Its large, green and white flowers are tubular, many petaled and...

Fragrant yellow, apple-shaped fruits ripen in the fall and are cooked for preserves and jellies, but are not eaten fresh.

Though it grows and flowers best in full sun and well-drained, acidic-to-neutral...
