Saguaro (pronounced suh-wahr-oh)

Becca came over and harvested the fruit off of our saguaros.  Did you know it takes 75 years of growing before a saguaro grows a side arm?  They can live for over 150 years!  The Tohono O'odham tribe used to get fat on the fruit.

A bird has gotten fat on this saguaro fruit.

The fruit is delicious.  Very slightly sweet with tiny black crunchy seeds inside.
