WANTED: Opuntia Xoconostle / joconostle

jedo2May 16, 2013

Hey anyone, I am looking for the prickly pear opuntia Xoconostle/ joconostle. It comes from Hidalgo, Mexico and produces a sour fruit with seeds pitted in the center unlike typical tunas. I know they sell the fruit in many different Mexican grocers here in the states. I am actually looking for cuttings. I thought living here in Texas It would not be hard to find someone who has a plant, but no luck at all. If anyone knows where I could find this or company that is actually growing it as a crop for fruit here in the states, please let me know. I have a small collection of large padded spineless opuntias that are cold hardy and nice looking if anyone is interested in trading. Thanks

I used seach engine to find out what it looks like. I have several opuntina, but none of that.

I live in Hi-desert, many cacti, many opuntia. So, I keep my eye open and grab one when I see it and let you know.

Thank you! I have started collecting different types of opuntias. I tend to stick to large padded types, with or without spines, that are unique to certain geographical areas. Let me know if you have something considered rare in your area. Thanks
