    Default Bok Choy and Tuna

    While at farmers market, I saw these cute leafy things, I was told Bok Choy...but when I buy at grocery store they have never looked like this.??
    Also...red and green cactus fruits are bought for Freds tortoise, at the market where very few speak english, they are called TUNA...does anyone have info on either?

    The "bok choy" looks okay to me. "Tuna" is "prickly pear" cactus. I don't know for sure about whether cactus is okay for squirrels, but usually if something is edible by people, it's okay for squirrels.

    I agree with the bok choy. I never heard of prickly pear refered to as "Tuna" that's funny I know our tortoises loved the catus fruit and prickly pear. I bet the squirrels would too

    "Tuna" is "prickly pear" in Spanish.

    Probably a different variety..... But it sure looks like a member of the cabbage family and, therefore, HEALTHY.
