Cereus Peruvianus, Peruvian Apple Cactus

This drought-resistant cactus produces edible Violet Red Fruit. The Peruvian apple cactus is an enormous, upright, prickly columnar cactus that can be found in South America.

Cereus peruvianus is primarily planted for decorative purposes, although it also has some gastronomic significance in the region. The interior wood of the shrub, which resembles canes, is also utilized by the Wayuu of Colombia’s and Venezuela’s La Guajira Peninsula Its cylindrical gray-green to blue stems, which frequently resemble trees, can grow into a self-supporting structure that is 10 meters (33 feet) tall and 10–20 cm in diameter.

The huge, cream-colored, nocturnal flowers are essential to pollinating bats and are only open for one night. The thornless fruits, also known as pitaya, olala (only in some regions of Bolivia), or Peruvian apples, range in skin tone from violet Red to yellow. The white, edible flesh is filled with tiny, crunchy, eatable seeds. As the fruit fully expands, the flesh becomes sweeter. The fruit is a vital source of food for birds in the cactus’ natural range because it thrives in arid areas and bears fruit in the dry seasons.
