Why does a prickly pear cactus


turn purple?

Purple prickly pear cactus

The less water it gets, the more purple it becomes… (usually during the summer here in Arizona).

We are having warmer than usual days obviously.

One word of advice. If you find a prickly pair cactus paddle at the grocery store and are tempted to try cooking it, beware ha!
