This branched columnar cactus reaches up to 10m in height in nature. It's green, grows very branched, and has long white thorns. In its home country, it's a historic crop. Its white second flowering appears in its natural habitat from January to
March. The edible fruits can be harvested in June and July.

The cactus pears have various applications - one of them, the usage as a hairbrush, has also given the cactus its Latin "Epitheton pecten-aboriginum" which means "The brush of the natives". However, the sweet fruits can also be used for vinous fermentation and for the production of marmalade. The flour ground from the black seeds used to be used for baking tortillas.

Chawe is, furthermore, used ceremonially in the healing arts or the Tarahumara in Central America. The most effective ingredient in the preparation of the shamanic healing potion is the juice of the young cactus sprouts.
