Stenocereus

Coming from the American tropical areas, these imposing cacti were among the first to be imported also in Europe as ornamental plants for their beauty and their characteristic columnar habit.In the areas of its origin, the Stenocereus fruit is still part of their daily diet, considered highly refreshing and with a slightly acidic flavor. Not many know that even now different ethnic groups use strong and compact stems of this plant as load-bearing structures in buildings, and even the inside of the stems is used as plaster: a cactus which is, therefore, useful not only for decorating, but is also very multifunctional!
