Kaktus feigen or prickly pears

Please all I have been in Switzerland for three years and normally go back to London for weekends but with covid I’m stuck here

I live a few mins by train to wadenswil In kanton Schwyz

Where can I buy Kaktus feigen or prickly pears. The season is nearly finishing and I am desperate for some.

I am quite a fussy eater so I prefer good quality fresh prickly pears

If anyone has seen them in a shop please tell me. I went to langastrasse today but there were none and the big coop at hb said they do not sell them

Re: Kaktus feigen or prickly pears

So either you made a miraculous recovery, or you are incredibly stupid and endangered people with your actions, or you have been entertaining yourself with fantasies, but if you are still interested in prickly pears:

Re: Kaktus feigen or prickly pears

Locally try Bettio at the Seedamm Centre. I’m sure I’ve seen them there. Otherwise, I’d try Globus or Jelmoli in Zurich.

If you could not spread COVID in your search that would be super. TIA.

Re: Kaktus feigen or prickly pears

I have bought them before from Alima, which appears to exist also in Zürich.

Well, it's boring to stay 2 weeks at home after getting the doctor's recommendation.

Re: Kaktus feigen or prickly pears

Böög in Hünenberg, Zug have them. You can order online as well. They only do prime quality foods.
