These mesquite trees have no thorns and im having a serious challenge trying to find out if they are Chilean, Argentine or Texas mesquites.. any ideas?
The seedpods look like Prosopis juliflora, Honey Mesquite, but the tree is supposed to have numerous thorns on the branches.
I will keep looking.
The latin name for velvet mesquite is Prosopis velutina. I don't know if there is a botanical term for oozing...
Metrosideros, the seed pods look exactly like honey mesquite......
I did some googling... and i found this.
perhaps this is a thornless cutting......as mentioned in the above link.
I havent found any other references to thorn-less varieties other than the Chilean and Argentine... but perhaps someone has come up with a thorn-less honey mesquite.
I noticed that the popular nurseries here are selling all three varieties. Chilean, Argentine and Honey mesquite..... but only the Chile and Argentine ones are mentioned as thorn-less....
Im going to do more research on this... maybe i will find it.
realbirdlady, I do belive that the white seed pods that i have the ones that are a bit wider are the velvet mequite.. thanks for your help with that.
another pict of the tree.
yep, there is a thornless honey mesquite... this is not going to be as easy as i thought... im going to mark this as solved because there is no way to be for sure what variety this is until i see the flower .......Thanks realbirdlady and Metrosideros for helping me to narrow this down... :)
