This type cacti is plentiful here in south Texas but not as much so as prickly pear. The wild turkeys eat the red berries and John calls it turkey pear. Good association, wouldn't you say? I don't know if other people call it by that name and I doubt that is the real name. It is kind of pretty when the berries are on so once I dug up one plant and planted it in my yard. It didn't have a home there for very long as the tiny stickers are more pesty then prickly pear. Maybe some of you other Texas girls will tell me if these grow on your place and what you think of them. OUCH! Is what I say.
