ABSTRACT: The aim of this study is to determine preparations of cheeps from cactus fruits. Cactus (opuntiassp), cactaceae family is well adapted to arid and hot dry lands, where the plants have a marked capacity to withstand prolonged drought. Cactus fruit have many uses such as: - food popular, in medicine, for water treatment, for consumer health and etc. Re cactus pear also cactus apple, prickly pear Barbary, which is the genus opuntia and member of the cactus family (cactuceaes). It is most commercially mechanically de-pricked but some stinging invisible hairs remain and pears must be peeled before serving. And this cactus fruit is an excellent source of vitamin-C-and provides one dietary fiber as well, which has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. About 5 kg of cactus was taken and the mosture content was calculated (60-80) % indicate good agreement with the previous study. Finally, cheep was prepared that can stay for morethan 5 days without any problem.
