Cactus Flesh is a Vegetable Food Item from the Reign of Giants DLC. It can be harvested from Cactus at the cost of 6 Health Meter. Eating it raw will cost the player 5 Sanity and 3 Health.

Cactus Flesh can be used as an ingredient in many Crock Pot recipes, but only Guacamole requires it specifically.

Feeding Cactus Flesh to Pigs will result in them producing Manure.

Depending on what type it is, wearing Armor while harvesting a cactus can reduce damage down to 1 Health Meter. Since Cooked Cactus Flesh heals this amount, one can negate the harvesting damage entirely.

Since Cacti are unaffected by cold during Winter, one can easily harvest Cactus Flesh and eat it cooked to regain Sanity lost from the long nights, or used in lieu of farmed vegetables in Crock Pot recipes.
