Ciolim (Cholla Buds)

Ciolim—cholla buds—have sustained the Tohono O’odham for countless generations. Just before the buckthorn cholla cactus flowers in the spring, its buds are hand picked, cleaned of their many thorns & dried for use year round. Cholla buds are incredibly healthy. They have high amounts of calcium and because they contain soluble pectin, they are good for those experiencing diabetes as they slow down digestion of sugars & other carbohydrates. This results in better control over blood sugar levels.
