Fruit of tall night-blooming cactus, the only fruit it's made in the 34 years I've known it, despite much flowering.

interesting
do you live near street lights? I wonder what extra light has to bear on this?
Does it need a pollinator, one not common to your area?
Might be waffling out of my depth!  :p

I don't know whether light affects its fruiting. The cactus is in the backyard, not near street lights. In the morning, the flowers attract honeybees while closing slowly over several hours. I haven't seen night-flying pollinators visit. These cacti are so prolific at vegetative reproduction, sending up shoots from the base, that they could do well without fruiting.

Richea Scoparia, a highland growing and very prickly native plant
This years flowers and seeds and last years seeds, well the remains of them.

The cactus fruit posted at POST 19160025 fell off yesterday. It's started to shrivel and leak a little liquid, and the red surface is turning black, starting at the edges of the opening.

Cactus, continued. The seeds look like watermelon seeds but much smaller.
