They are all different types of Cereus which have yummy fruit. Is that all you got so far? I could certainly send you a cut and some seeds to play with.

Nah trichocereus and cereus are different, if ya look at pictures of the two you will see the difference, mainly in the ribs, cereus has slender deep ribs and tricho has fat broad ribs. 

But a good plant none the less as HD said they have yummy fruit, similar to dragon fruit and they make pretty good grafting stock : )

Wow I have much to learn, very interesting stuff. I need something decent to graft onto my cereus :)

For grafting I would prob cut the larger cereus plants about 15cm from the ground, let the cutting callus and plant as a drought hardy fruit tree and wait for the stump to sprout some smaller tips and when approx. 15cm + snip them off to root up as grafting stock

Oh and its good to have some different varieties of cereus as I believe this will likely produce a better fruit set .

when I was quite young and somewhat ignorant, in my anxious excitement I had discovered what I thought to be a tricho, i ended up using 1 foot of cereus instead lol Yummy 

Makes me laugh and shudder to think back to that time lol

Cereus requires pollination (and fruit) from a 2nd cereus, not a clone but a different plant. This could be 2 from the same seed batch...
