October is also the end of the prickly pears in Marrakech, but we could still see a lot of sellers in the streets. They are all over the city because like for lots of other foods, they sell it in little carts that they can easily move around. They are around 2 dirhams per fruit (but for this one I could never find out if it was the normal or the tourist price…)
Prickly fruits are delicious juicy and sweet fruits full of seeds that you should swallow instead of chew. But the annoying part of this fruit is not the seeds but the spikes all over its skin. In fact, it is a cactus fruit! So if you try to do it at home, please be careful and don’t grab it directly with your bear hands.
