SOLVED: Which Cylindropuntia?

(Zone 7a)

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?

I couldn't either. Remember trying to pick a fruit from it; my hands where perforated! LOL!

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.
