poisonous prickly pear
i met a few people who have prickly pear cactus, they let me have some and my mom thought i was growing them (which i am (from seeds) and didnt know i planned on eating them i have a couple questions!
1) my mom wants to know if there are any poisonous prickly pears and wont let me eat them unless i KNOW theres no record of poisoning in prickly pear
2) there green (not ripe) will they still taste good?
3) i have one i forgot to peel and "process" can i ripen it some how?
please and thanks for the information
