Screwbean Mesquite


Easily identified by its unique, clustered, screw-shaped beans, the screwbean mesquite is a small, shrubby and thorny tree native to the Sonoran Desert. The edible bean pods have been used for centuries as a source of food for both early human civilizations, as well as wildlife. Makes for a great street tree when there are overhead power lines in the planting area as they usually don’t grow very tall.
