Pretty sure its some kind of Echinocactus. Maybe even Grusonii but i rather think its one of the less known ones like Platyacanthus.

probably a Ferocactus, hard to tell how big it is from the picture but almost a meter tall i'd say. not sure the species

Yes Ferocactus is right. Maybe Ferocactus Townsendianus. Really a stunning plant. Would love to investigate it in reality.

Hey, Evil Genius, I heard there's a fucking huge garden with very very old trichocereus somewhere in Barcelona, lot's of varieties, probably very unique seeds/pollen to be collected. It's private property, but it's abandoned and you need to climb over a fence. I got to know this through an Australian. I'll ask directions :).

Not that i've tried anywhere near as many as i would like but IME they vary a lot even within the same species, but as a general rule most of the Fero fruits i've tried have been juicy, sweet & a sorta floral flavor to sweet & insipid tasting of nothing in particular.

Although i once tasted a F hamatacanthus that was as sour & acidic as any lemon, probably quite nice in a drink or in cooking but too sour to eat as a fresh fruit.

Just my 2c worth.
