I believe that they need another cacti of the same in order for the seed to be viable, in other words they need to be pollinated by another cacti of the same kind in order to produce seeds that will grow???? I could be wrong, but I really think this is the case.

You can always try! Some cacti are self-fertile, some aren't. If it set seed, go ahead and plant 'em and tell us what happens!

It started growing the fruit on it before it set flower so would that mean it's self-fertile Duh
