A prickly pear is a spiny fruit and resource food item that can be planted or consumed. When consumed, it restores health and hunger to a blockhead.


Prickly pears are recognizable by their round reddish appearance with white hairlike spines on its outer skin.

Where Found[edit]

Prickly pears are found growing on cacti located in the desert biome regions. They tend to appear on the upper end of a cactus' branches and often spawn in pairs.


Prickly pears grow randomly on cacti and are harvested by hand. Climbing a cactus to harvest a prickly pear will result in a blockhead sustaining health damage. Agriculturally, the fruit can be placed in a block of sand or compost to grow a cactus for farming additional prickly pears.

Prickly pears can be harvested year-round.


Five prickly pears can be used to craft compost at a compost bin from version 1.6 onwards.
