The pads. We get the pickled nopales at safeway, but are now growing some.
I live in illinois and it winters fine leave it outside all year speads like wild fire.its hearty like hen and chicks
What is the easiest way to propagate it? I think I might want to move a little of it before it gets smashed where it currently is (not a very big one growing in a location where it could get run over if people are not careful.)
From packets from past seed season from Jung Seed Co:
Tomato - Heirloom paste - Opalka
Melon - Heirloom cantelope - Amish
Pea - Snow Pea - Sandy
Tomato - Heirloom cherry - Koralik
Tomato - OP drying - Principe Borghese
Cowpea - Heirloom - Pink Eyed Purple Hull
I could also send post paid packaging, or other arrangement.
What are the pads how do you eat them. rose
TCLynx: From what I've been researching, you just cut off a pad and stick it in soil. Don't water, as it stores enough to root itself. Watering apparently can lead to rotting, instead of rooting.

Do your goats eat them Leah?

Prickly pear species were introduced into Australia in the late 1800s, causing major ecological damage in the eastern states (see www.northwestweeds.nsw.gov.au).
I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
