FOR WHAT ?
Harvesting the prickly pear is quite restrictive due to the spikes it presents.

And the process of extracting and drying the seeds is quite long; to produce one liter of prickly pear seed oil, 35 to 50 kilos of seeds are needed, which represents a ton of fruit. Organic prickly pear seed oil is a rare commodity due to its low yield since each seed contains only 5% pure oil.
