|The prickly pear is commonly found disperesed all over the maltese islands. This shot in particular, was taken in "Wied Ghomor" (pronounced Wid omor) in San Gwann. The fruit of these plants mature in summer around July-August and are very popular between maltese people. Altough they contain many pips they are REALLY delicious. The only problem is how to pick them up without getting too much thorns and spines in your hand. The other tree in the background is a carob tree. Its also quite common in the maltese islands. Hope you like the shot.|
