Chainfruit cholla

Chainfruit cholla 1462 copyright small

The fascinating chainfruit cholla is called so because of its segmented branches that look like strange fruit. The plants are also called jumping cholla because the prickly parts seem to jump out at you and cling if you get too close. The spines have tiny hooks that make it almost impossible to remove unless you know the secret of flicking the pieces of the plant off with a comb.
