The Peruvian apple cactus (Cereus repandus) more often known under the name of Cereus peruvianus, it is a tall, spreading columnar cactus well known to cactus fanciers throughout the world. It is grown mostly as an ornamental plant, but it has some local culinary importance, and is probably the most widely cultivated Cereus.

Habit: It is a perennial treelike stem succulent, often with many upright or slightly curved branches above, often with distinct trunks up to 10 m high (but usually less)
Stems: Cylindrical, somewhat slender, segmented, grey-green to blue, 10-20 cm in diameter.
Ribs: 9-10, fairly low, rounded, somewhat compressed and undated, to 1 cm high.
Areoles: Small, widely separated.
Spines: Extremely variable, often numerous, sometimes absent, grey, needle-like, the longest to 5 cm.
Flowers: Nocturnal, each flower opens for just one night and then shrivels up, white with reddish tips, 12-15 cm long. It is self-incompatible and requires cross-pollination to obtain fruits.
Blooming season: During the warm season Cereus repandus produces several flower flushes.
Fruits: The fruits, known locally as "Pitaya", “Peruvian Apple” or “ Koubo” are globose to elongate up to 4 cm long,
