The rarely visited Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is located in extreme southern Arizona, where it meets the Mexican state of Sonora. This desert west of Tucson is the hottest and driest in the USA. 

The park is the only place in the United States where you can see the fascinating Organ Pipe Cactus.

There are 26 species of cacti in the monument, ranging from giant saguaros to miniature pincushions. They are highly adapted to dry, desert living, with spines for protection and shade, thick skin and pulp to preserve water, and sturdy, woody frames holding them together.

Unlike some cactus, the Organ Pipe is not a prolific bloomer. It only opens its white, creamy flower blossoms during the cooler evening hours, closing early the following day. And only during April, May, and June.

This leaves little time for daytime pollinators to feast on the sweet flower nectar. So instead, lesser long-nosed bats do most of the night pollination.

Organ pipe cacti originated in the warm, dry tropics arriving in the Sonoran Desert about 3500 years ago. They can live to over 150 years of age but will only produce their first flower near age 35. However, they can grow as high as 26ft if they get enough rain from the monsoons in July and August.

They are valued by the Tohono O'Odham tribe for their delicious red fruit, which is sweet and fleshy and has been described as better than watermelon.

The organ pipe cactus is a beautiful example of how cacti adapt to survive in the Sonoran Desert. Like its fellow cacti and other desert inhabitants, the organ pipe is tuned to the rhythms of the sun and the infrequent rains.
