I love trying new food, especially when they are fruits or vegetables, so when my coworker suggested we get some cactus at a market, I was all in. I hadn't bought it before because I wasn't sure how to eat it.

They are called tunas here (not to be confused with tuna fish, which is "atun").

Here is Elena peeling the tunas. The next day our co-workers corrected us and showed us that you only need to cut the top and bottom off, make a slit, and then the skin comes right off.

The tunas have a texture like watermelon, but super juicy. There are a lot of seeds like watermelon has too, but we just eat them. I have been having one or two a day and I'm hooked!
