Barrel Cactus Fruit
The fruit of the Barrel cactus is best prepared in sweet applications, since its natural tartness lends itself well to a hint of sugar. Cook the fruit down with agave syrup to make a jam, jelly or a sweet and sour chutney.
Ber (Indian Jujube)
Inventory, lb : 0
Ber are small, round to oblong shaped fruits with thin, tight, and glossy, orange-red skin when ripe. Ber can be consumed both slightly under-ripe and ripe but both offer a different flavor and texture profile. When slightly under-ripe the skin is light green to yellow in color, the flesh is white, crisp, juicy and tastes similar to a crabapple. Fully ripe Ber are less crisp with a somewhat mealy texture and musky, apple-like aroma. Each fruit contains a rough, inedible, central stone.
Ber fruit, or Indian Jujubes, are available in the fall and spring months.
