Not exactly sure what genus/species these are, maybe Ferocactus spp.?
It’s amazing to see cacti like that just growing wild!
Baja, Mexico has an unbelievable variety of cacti and other interesting plants / trees, such as Bursera spp.
Any chunky interesting trees are great attractents to Steve and I. We are tree people. We studied horticulture because we both love trees and the rest was incidental. We grew so many trees we had to give most of them away recently because we had no hope of ever growing them all here. We minimised to a select core of useful hardy trees that would act as wood futures, nut trees (very valuable as calorie dense food of the future and for non dairy milk and protein) and will be planting them out this autumn. Next step is to start assimilating the fruit trees. It certainly makes for an interesting and productive life this horticulture lark doesn’t it? bursera spp. are magnificent…just went hunting to check them out. If we ever win the lottery we will head off on a world safari of plants 🙂
