Malta is a small island in the middle of the mediterranean... (for those of you who don't know!) The climate here is mild to hot , we have hot summers..... very hot!!! and mild winters, even though I must say it has been rather wet the last winter........ anyway these plants are though survivors they live with hardly any water and the one with the green oval shaped Petals makes this fruit called 'bajtar tax-xewk' Prickly Pears , they are very tasty but one has to be carefull on how to cut them from the tree as they are rather prickly!!
