The Nopal fruit, or Nopal cactus as it’s more commonly known as today, is a fruit found primarily in the mountainous regions of Mexico. The Nopal is farmed regularly in these regions as the rich and rocky soil offers the essential nutrients the Nopal needs to grow to it’s full potential.
In addition to the soil the Nopal benefits from higher elevations by it naturally having less pests. These key factors help Nopal farmers produce healthy and more abundant Nopal crops. The main reason the Nopal is farmed so much in that region is the great benefits the plant receives. The reason the Nopal is cultivated at all is very much the same. The prickly pear is harvested as a traditional food product of the country and for it’s nutritional and therapeutic benefits.
