I grew this paddle shaped cactus tree from just three paddles which a neighbor had pitched into my ditch. It was just one base paddle and two upright palms. I believe it is a Prickly Pear variety but not sure which so it's some kind of Opuntia.

No long needles.
Occasional fine needle picked up if handling the paddles.

Survives the heat and cold here on the Gulf side of Central Florida.

Help id?

TIA! :)
