GIANT SAGUARO: One of the largest and most spectacular inhabitants of the Sonora Desert is the Saguaro Cactus (Latin name "Carnegiea gigantea"). This cactus can live up to 250 years, grow more than 70 feet high and weigh up to 2000 pounds. The night-blooming saguaro blossom is the state flower of Arizona. The sweet, juicy cactus fruit ripens through late June. Purchase your own saguaro seed packet and you will be able to grow your own Giant Saguaro Cacti from anywhere in the world! Your saguaros will germinate in 3 to 10 days.
PRICKLY PEAR: The Prickly Pear Cacti have flat, fleshy pads that look like large leaves. The pads are used for water storage, photosynthesis and flower production. The Prickly Pear pads, commonly called "Nopales" are a common ingredient in Southwest Salsas. The fruits of the prickly pear cacti are edible and made into jelly, candy, and honey. The prickly pear nectar is also known for its cholesterol lowering properties. This easy to grow plant is a very beautiful and colorful plant for xeriscapes and other landscapes.
