There are still some spines between me and a tasty meal.

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.png. 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.png. 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. Cactus is easily renewable in the Desert biomes which makes it a good base location.

Cooked Cactus Flesh is acquired by cooking Cactus Flesh on a CampfireFire Pit or Star. It restores the same Hunger as its raw form, but does not hurt the player's Health and restores 15 Sanity Meter.png instead.
