The Sicilian prickly pear arrived in Europe after the discovery of America, and has found widespread use on the island. The prickly pear is highly appreciated for its strong exotic taste and for its therapeutic and medicinal properties, given the high content of fiber, mineral salts, vitamins, calcium and iron. For all these properties it is considered in various countries of the world "the fruit of health", worthy of belonging to the Mediterranean diet.
