no, they are not strawberries... in mexico we call the fruit of this cactus a "tuna". about the size of a pear, it's sweet - like a mix between a grape and kiwi - but is full of seeds that you swallow.

"in Israel we call that cactus "tzabar" and the fruits are "sabres". the native Israeli is also called "tzabar", because we are like that cactus: fresh, resilient and we prickle :)"

"yes... lot's of super fine "spines", youmust carefully handle them so you don't stick yourself (many people use a cloth and a knife to cut it it open and pluck out the fruit inside)"
