Barrel cactus fruit

Found growing on top of barrel cacti throughout the Mojave, the fruit has a distinctive shape and yellow color, making it easy to harvest. It offers minor hydration, and is best used as a crafting ingredient for the desert salad, homebrewed Nuka-Cola and blood shield (the last two require Honest Hearts).
The fruit will eventually respawn after being collected.
