Economic research into intensive cactus pear production in Italy shows the existence of several aspects and problems of considerable interest. Firstly, it emerges that over 90% of Italian cactus pear cultivation, in terms of surface area and production, is concentrated in Sicily. Secondly, the cultivation is characterized by high levels of technical machinery and specialized work, and also by organization and management not dissimilar to those of other “rich” tree crops, and allows for the producer to achieve good economic results.
