Nopal is derived from the prickly pear cactus, which is native to Mexico and the southwestern regions of the US. In Mexico, its use as a food and medicine dates back to the Aztec period, 900-1521 AD. After the spines have been removed, this tasty ripe fruit has a unique sweet flavour that continues to be a staple in the Mexican diet.
