Under the warm starlit skies of a Tucson, Arizona B&B night, a magical mystical show is about to take place at our Tucson,Arizona Bed and Breakfast with the exquisitely beautiful night blooming cactus setting the stage.
In the early morning when the sun rises over our Tucson Bed and Breakfast Inn, the birds and the bees and other insects enjoy partaking from the now closing cactus flowers. Each cactus flower will close up, dry up and fall off the plants.
Where the flower once was, a soft ripe reddish pink round fruit will develop with many small black seeds inside.
The fruit is called a Peruvian apple or also known as tuna by the Mexican people. Inside the fruit it looks very much like a soft over ripened kiwi fruit but it tastes rather plain. The gila woodpeckers and many other Tucson birds and desert wildlife of the Arizona Sonora Desert love to eat these cactus fruits.
So, The chain of life goes on at the Tucson, Arizona Bed and Breakfast Inn
located in the Tucson desert nestled near the Saguaro National Park East.What a beautiful sight!
