Theoretical route to taming Opuntia (Prickly Pear)

This week, I talk about Prickly Pear (Opuntia) and how it might be further tamed to further the quest to feed humanity: A Spiky Saviour - by A. Potentilla - Urban Food Forest

I undertook a fair amount of research into non-prickly and non-glocchid bearing cultivars of different Opuntia species. I hope that what I write will inspire others to undertake these projects!
