Barrel Crown

These barrel cactus are also called fishhook cactus because of the shape of their spines. Barrel cactus have flowers at different times throughout the year and produce this ring of seed pods which I suppose are edible although I haven't tried any of these. I have one of these plants growing in my front yard and I suppose I should try the pods to see what they taste like.
