Abstract: The vegetable “nopal” production or “nopalitos” is distinctive on the Mexican diet due to its nurturing and medicinal properties, mainly in Texcoco, State of Mexico; the place in which the research was carried out. In this sense, the investment project was evaluated so as to know the profitability indicators for the production of the “nopal” vegetable in greenhouse conditions. In order to achieve these results, information about the costs of the greenhouses was collected, differed costs, labor capital and the volume of production was determined on a surface of 16,800 m2. In addition, the retail prices took also an important part on the research so as to measure the income this project generates. Results show that the cost structure is formed by 91.0% of fixed costs, 4.8% differed costs and 4.2% labor capital, indicating that the total of investment was of $6,927,692.05. The eleven-year financial evaluation showed that the project is profitable, because the Net Actual Value (NAV) = 3,266,706, Cost Benefit Ratio = 1.15, Net Investment Ratio = 1.45, Internal Return Rate (IRR) of a 20.6% and the balance point in 26.8%. Besides, it was found that the project suffers no alteration by price changes and increment of production costs.
