Beavertail Cactus

Beavertail cactus
This is a beavertail cacti (Opuntia echinocarpa), one of the two cacti which are indigenous to the Antelope Valley. In the spring, these plants produce very showy, magenta colored flowers as much as 3 inches across. The wine colored fruit was eaten by the Native American Indians and makes an excellent jelly.
