Atomicrops Wiki

Prickly Pears are a type of Crop which can be grown in Atomicrops.


Finding Prickly Pear Seeds[]

Seeds PricklyPear Small.png Prickly Pear seeds can be found in the first Desert area, most commonly from clearing Squirrel and Bulb Camps. They are also sometimes dropped by defeated Enemies, with a higher chance to obtain them from killing Beeson or when using the Flying Squirrels Weapon. Cutting Weeds may also drop Prickly Pear seeds. See the Related Items section of this page for other sources.

Alternatively, they have a high chance to be obtained when purchasing a SeedBagDesert0.png Bronze Tier Desert Seed bag. These are sold for 30Cashew.png at the Garden Shop in Spring.

Fertilization and Megacrop Variant[]

Prickly Pears need 3Fertilizer.png Fertilizer to be fully fertilized. Creating a Megacrop (from 4 Prickly Pear plants in a 2x2 formation) therefore requires 12Fertilizer.png. A mega Prickly Pear requires a further 6Fertilizer.png to become fully fertilized itself.


Small Prickly Pears need 0 units of water and a freshly merged Mega Prickly Pear needs 1 unit of water to fully grow. Since the smaller version of the Crop does not need water to grow it may be preferable to grow four smaller versions and then merge them in order to avoid the 1 water required for the larger version.
