I am offering to ship you 2-3 pads from the opuntia humifusa cactus that I use to make nopales, edible cactus leaves. They are called spineless, but contain areolas with glochids. The glochids need to be cut off, brushed off, or burned off before eating.
The flowers are gorgeous. The edible leaves are ready to harvest on about July 4th in Cache Valley.
This has been winter hardy at my place since 2009 (USDA zone 4/5). Winter hardiness is enhanced if winter moisture is minimized, such as by planting in sandy soil. Deer and antelope love to eat these, so they may not be appropriate for remote wildlands.
You may ask me to substitute a pad of opuntia polyacantha and/or cylindropuntia imbricata. I don't consider either species to be edible.
Shipping to usa only in a small flat-rate box.
Cost = $25 or one silver dollar.
Send me a private message for payment details and to confirm availability as winter approaches.
They wither up during the winter, whether they are bare pads or on full roots.
Winter hardiness is best if planted into well draining soil. I typically make a bed of sand/gravel about a foot deep, and plant into that. They are also susceptible to being eaten by deer and other animals.
