Posted this earlier in GW; but no one could tell me for sure.

I have received the following suggestions:

Cylindropuntia caribaea
C. leptocaulis

I haven't a clue; anyone else?

The plant is called Christmas cactus. The red berries are still on the plant during the holidays and that's how it got the name. It is Cylindropuntia leptocaulis, a native of Texas, southern New Mexico southeast Arizona and the Mexican states of Sonora, Chihuahua and Coahuila.
