Here for your browsing pleasure is a grand photo of a Saguaro Cactus Harvest. It was made in 1907 by Edward S. Curtis.

The photo documents Two Pima women harvesting "hasen", the sweet, pear-sized fruit from the giant Saguaro cactus, which may be eaten fresh or dried, and could also be used to make syrup or wine.
