There are 2 kinds of cacti. The tall ones with arms are just for wood. The short bushy ones grow fruit periodically like the huckleberry bushes.

RE: settings for faster tree growing?
I'm not at home right now, but the file you have to edit in Ecosim.eco if i remember right the variable is "MaturityAgeDays". Every plant and animal has one.
Personally i have found reducing the values to 1/4 of the default makes tree farming in a solo world possible.
Always make a backup copy of any file you plan to edit incase you break it.
