FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Where & how do you harvest the cactus fruit?

CALIWATER has formed a direct relationship with harvesters who safely, legally and fairly source the prickly pear cactus fruits in desert regions mainly in California. The cactus fruit is hand-picked from centuries old Opuntia cactus plants and harvest begins each year in the hottest months of late Summer. We've formulated our beverage with a 'Not From Concentrate Prickly Pear Puree' providing for an incredibly fresh experience that matches the taste of the fruit eaten right off the cactus.

 

Where do you manufacture Cactus Water?

Our production facility is a quick trip from our fields where the cactus is harvested so Caliwater is now both sourcing & manufacturing in our own back yard in California.
