you call this a pear?
I've had pears. But now I've had a cactus pear. I've also had a prickly pear, because that's the same thing as a cactus pear too. The cactus pear isn't pear-shaped at all, it's oblong, and grows on a cactus instead of a tree, and has a needly red skin instead of a smooth green skin, so I don't blame you for being confused.
The inside looks like a juicy tomato instead of a crisp apple.
And it definitely doesn't taste like a pear. It tastes like watermelon. Watermelon with lots of very small, hard seeds. Seeds that I read were edible, but did not seem very edible to me.
All in all, I do not think this is really a pear.
