dc.description.abstractThe cactus pear (known by its scientific name as Opuntia ficus-indica) was not always accepted in Pakistan as a source of food for animals, much less as a fruit fit for human consumption. It was commonly believed to be the plant from hellfire; it suffered this unfortunate reputation by association with the upright prickly pear (known by the scientific name as Opuntia stricta), its close “cactus cousin.”en_US
