This variety of opuntia has thornless, pleasant to touch thick leaves. During summer hot day leaves warm up and their touch reminds of a warm hand touch. The plant will form a nice ornamental shrub. Flowers are bright red to crimson. Very fast growing, will thrive in neglect, tolerates almost any conditions. Perfect plant for a lazy gardener.

This is a nearly spineless variety of cactus that is easy to prepare, and has a delightful taste both raw and cooked.

Related species - Opuntia tomentosa.
