Arizona Cactus Ranch is located on forty square miles of desert near Green Valley in Southern Arizona, and is surrounded by Engelmann Prickly Pear Cactus. Every August and September, fruit buds from the cactus are harvested to produce a slightly sweet tasting juice that's 100% pure, concentrated prickly pear nectar with no water, and sugar or preservatives added. We grow and harvest Organic Prickly Pear Fruit and Organic Mesquite Beans. Manufacturer and sell Sugar-Free Prickly Pear Healthfoods and Mesquite Meal and products made from mesquite beans.
