I don't think so. How big is it and where did it come from?

With 80% certainty, ill say no. Fragilis has spines, wrinkles, and even if it is a spineless variant, it have purple rings around the areoles which are also more numerous... and fruits arent so smooth. Looks like a chain fruit from a dilenni or something. Or a chain fruit cholla(cylindropuntia sp.)?
Wish list:
Hardy globular cacti

I know it's not a cholla because I have multiple of those. It's definitely a mystery.

This is Opuntia fragilis:

But remember, Opuntia are one of those plants that hybridizes so freely that every area has its own version. This is the Nevada version.
