Don't eat prickly pear fruits whilst out on a ramble. I did this last week in Lipari, and I have a degree in botany. I peeled the fruit so carefully so as to get those little spines off, but it didn't work. Thirty seconds of gustatory delight, followed by two days of picking the little spikes out of my lips and tongue. Not what you want, believe me!
