There are 40+ species of mesquite tree. Our project will help Suchilquitongo utilize species in their region that haven't been harvested before.
There are 7 different species of mesquite trees native to Texas and northern Mexico!
Mesquite is packed with nutrients! Ground pods are between 11-17% protein!
