A Prickly Pear is a food item in Survival 303.
The prickly pear is the only food and water source naturally found in the desert and on overhang bay. The plant's fruit gives 4 hunger points and 2 thirst points. It can be made into juice, using a glass cup and 1 prickly pear. It can also be planted in a small compost if you have 3 farming. It is only found naturally in the large flat part of Desert island on the old map, and on Overhang Bay on the new map. It is also a life saver in the desert if you decide to live there. It is recommended you have a farming skill of 3 to plant prickly pear in order to make juice and eat them which will raise both thirst and hunger like apples and berries. Prickly pears are a delicacy to people who don't inhabit the desert. Most tribes will trade good stuff for lots of prickly pears if they are too lazy to obtain them themselves, so it makes prickly pears an uncommon and valuable food.
