Polaskia chichipe is a cactus that resembles a tree, developing a short trunk and branching at the top as it matures. It can reach a height of 16.5 feet (5 m) and its branches are characterized by a greenish-grey color, curved shape, and 9 to 12 acute wavy ribs. Each areole contains 6 to 7 up to 2 inches (5 cm) long radial spines and one longer grayish central spine. The small flowers are either yellowish-green or pinkish-white, while the edible fruits are spherical, red, and up to 1.2 inches (3 cm) in diameter.

While they are not able to withstand harsh frost, they can be moved indoors to a sunny windowsill or under a grow light in the event of freezing temps.

Please Note: Plant will ship bare root with little to no dirt, and you will receive a plant similar to the one in the photo. It is advised to handle this plant with caution and use gloves or tongs as it is covered in spines.
