I was experimenting
I saw these Cactus pear (prickly pear) and I wanted to try
The guy in the store said they were good and just peel em like a potato
So I got them and brought them home. But I decided to look them up. While I was reading my hands began to burn and there was a splinter in my finger. Apparently they have micro splinters that you aren't aware of.
UGH it hurt and apparently I am allergic as my whole hand was burning.
I read that you have to be careful even peeling them because if you leave any skin you can get splinters in your mouth and oesophagus
So I didn't take any chances
I pitched them
