Prickly pear


I’ve seen Jeju speciality prickly pear flavoured chocolates often enough, and know that you can get various other products based on prickly pear, but it’s still a surprise to see fields of the plant. The photo below was taken near Jeju’s west coast and there are plenty of fields just like this.

I don’t know how you harvest the plant; you must need some robust protective gear.
