This funny little cactus is originally from Brazil and has spread throughout the more arid Caribbean Islands. The long phallic flowers actually produce an edible fruit that tastes like a mild strawberry (see photo below.) The trick is to wait until the pink little fruit is almost popping out of the flower, then it will be ripe and sweet.         

Photographs made on the Ram Head Trail.
