prickly pear information/sources?

alkylyou | Jun 29, 2009 10:31 AM

i'm really getting into new fruit flavors this summer and i remember having a prickly pear paleta last summer at my favorite paleta shop.
it tasted so wonderfully sweet and familiar, yet i couldn't tag it as being close in flavor to anything in particular besides maybe pomegranate and lemons.
is there a particular season for prickly pears and if so, where can i find them when they're in season?
also, how do you pick them out for ripeness, sweetness, etc.?
thanks in advance!
