Eating cactuses

A funny story from Christine made me think about how dangerous it might really be, living in a foreign country without understanding the natives in detail. Offered a piece of cactus, would you eat it? (I remember that we already tried some cactus-fruits during our first field trip)

And now, for an easy answer to that question, I found a funny book: “Psychoaktive Kakteen”. It says, that in general all Cactaceae areeadible. Some contain other, more exiting features than just sugar, like mescaline for instance. But the author also warns, that some cacti may be confused with individuals from the Euphorbiaceae
