Huh? Saguaro

Next up in the "Huh?" series is a look at the word "Saguaro," the namesake of the team of six Astros prospects in the Arizona Fall League.

A saguaro is a type of cactus that can grow to the size of a tree, and can live up to 150 years. They can take up to 75 years to grow a side arm (so many jokes, so many jokes...). The image of the saguaro is on the Old El Paso brand label (though no saguaros grow within 250 miles of El Paso), and the saguaro blossom is the state flower of Arizona.

If you didn't know, now you know.

And knowing is half the battle.
