Facts about Mesquite

Known by many as the honey mesquite tree, or by its botanical name, prosopis glandulosa. Grows in the northern region of Mexico and Southern region of the United States.

Many ranchers consider the tree a nuisance because it competes with rangeland grasses for moisture.

Eradicating mesquite is difficult because the plant's bud regeneration zone can extend down to 6 inches below ground level. Unlike other trees, Mesquite trees grow quickly and can regenerate from a piece of root left in the soil.

Cooking with mesquite became popular in the mid-1980s since it burns slowly and releases heat and a rich scent that permeates grilled food. As a result, many restaurants advertise a menu that includes mesquite grilled steaks, chicken, and fish.
