Well, it’s not spoiled fruit! It is actually prickly pear fruit; and this is how it is supposed to look. In Ms. Anderson’s classroom, we read a story in Reading class called: “A Walk in the Desert”. In the story it describes how prickly pear fruit is a desert growing plant. The students were curious as to how this fruit tasted. So, we had a taste test. Most students who tried it liked it and compared it to Kiwi fruit or watermelon. The seeds are edible and a bit crunchy. A few students did not care for it, and some students chose not to try it.
