  1. Prickly Pear are a noxious weed in Australia. They were bought here by early settlers and became invasive. Apparently people used to make jam from the fruit but I have no idea how they picked them. Not sure how they got them under control either but now you rarely see them over here.

  2. The Portuguese certainly don’t have any machinery, I am guessing they have thick gloves as the tiny spikes on the pears themselves are lethal!! The jam though is delicious 🙂
