    I am from the state of Chihuahua Mexico we have tons of Tuna fruits i never seen nobody burn the hairs or espinas as we call it down here we just grab them with a peace of paper from both ends and slice one side and then just roll around the skin off in less than 15 seconds you will have the skin off and ready 2 eat….My mom has a cactus in back of her house the Tunas are the size of an Apple and very dark red and so sweet…..Saludos!

  8. we have that in our country but it's green and if we want to eat it we've just to put it in water to remove thorns and then peel it off and eat it

  10. You seem to use tongs a lot in your videos.  Uhhhhh Why not just carry tongs instead of making them every video?  They don't weigh much.

  18. What kind of cactus can you eat the leaves from? This one? Would you roast it like the cactus apple you just did? This is interesting for me since I visit the desert. Where are you, in Arizona?
