    You can grow them in wintery weather too, they are very cold resistant and have been tested to survive – 169 degrees Celsius as unbelievable as that sounds. There is a native type in Canada Saskatchewan!

  8. Princess Jebaraj on December 12, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    I think a much easier way to extract the seeds would be to mash the pulp with your hand under water and then strain it

  9. Hisne hisan on December 12, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Hi, I love these prickly pears..I am so much interested to plant one from seeds. I can plant from the fruit seeds I buy from market please let me know. Love your vedio.

  10. Julie Miles on December 12, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    how long does it take for the seeds to sprout

  11. Samuel G. Muñoz on December 12, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Are those "Tunas"? They’re delicious , super juicy and sweet. And the "Nopales" the leaves are delicious, you should keep it and prepare "Nopalitos"

  16. D90Girl on December 12, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    Can you just speak in a normal tone of voice 🙄

  17. Desert Plants of Avalon on December 12, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    So guys what is your favourite cactus to harvest seed from?

  18. Alberto Valdez on December 12, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    I live in Mexico and that cactus here is called “Nopal” and the fruit is a Tuna, tunas are delicious

  19. Diane Picard on December 12, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Ah thank you for the advice I just bought the fruit so I can eat half and use the other half to grow the seeds

  20. Erika Olson on December 12, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    I’m pregnant and my mouth is watery just looking at this fruit. They are so good with lemon and salt. Good video, I will definitely harvest the seeds when I get my hand on some of them.

  21. alfian cahya firdaus on December 12, 2020 at 10:01 pm

  22. Mohammad Abu-Saada on December 12, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Today I went to polish grocery shop in the town here in Ireland, I found it and couldn’t believe that I would find this fruit here! I bought a box, peeled and eaten the whole box!! huhu, so delicious 😋 reminds me of old days in my hometown, this fruit is very popular in all middle eastern countries…

  23. AG TV on December 12, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Lol they’re already harvested if they’re in a container you bought at the market wtf

  24. Malika Swain on December 12, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Ufffff talking too much

  25. One Woman's Treasure on December 12, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    I like that I’m not the only one who buys produce for its seeds! Dragon fruit is next for me.

  26. Ms. Mae9 on December 12, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Love those prickly pear especially when they’re chilled.

  27. Mark Sword on December 12, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I guess from various other videos, you get used to handling the fruits despite the numerous glochids, much like watching farmers pick several thousands of them. I haven’t gotten to that point yet, I still like to slightly roast of the tiny glochids off the fruit. ✌

  28. Nadia 168 on December 12, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    ❤️👍🏼😘

  29. Made In Texas on December 12, 2020 at 10:09 pm

  31. Dave Cannamela on December 12, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Is it me or does she talk too much rather than getting on with the cutting??

  32. Gabor Didier Edoh on December 12, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Keep it simple and short harvesting harvest all over again

  33. Ari Kurdi on December 12, 2020 at 10:17 pm

  35. wavi on December 12, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Few days ago I harvested opuntia’s seeds too. Today was a great day for plants, because it’s my boyfriend’s birthday! We bought 2 schlumberga (beautiful white and pink), and a cute jade plant. Have a wonderful weekend guys 😊

  36. Made In Texas on December 12, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    I love those fruits they are all over Mexico. They call them tunas in Mexico. Green and red ones yummy 😋. I’m going to try and grow some 2019👍😎✌️

  37. Messed Up Hina on December 12, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    I germinated mine but they are so slow to grow

  38. Justin Tym on December 12, 2020 at 10:24 pm

  39. Missy Silva on December 12, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Hello cactus friend😊 how do i scarify these seeds?

  40. Cactimania on December 12, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Huge fruits, and you’ll be overrun with Opuntias lol

  41. sean k on December 12, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    I peel the fruit, then press it by hand into a metal sifter, and collect the pulp for drinking, rinse them throughly before drying them on newspaper

  42. allan90723 on December 12, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Great method ! I just copied it to propagate my Peruvian apple cactus from Seed , it’s fun ! I love prickly pears , it’s original name is “ tunas “ from opuntias “ nopales “ as well . Inside a big bottle in my window.

  43. Olga's Greenland on December 12, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Hi Lyn . This fruits are very popular here in Greece. Actually i have sent you the Opuntia that makes this fruits. Opuntia ficus indica is everywhere here. Hope in the future you have your own fruits when your Opuntia grows.

  44. P S on December 12, 2020 at 10:30 pm
