Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Prosopis juliflora, DC., and allies. Mesquit, or Mesquite. Several forms have been confused under this name. P. juliflora, DC., is a strictly W. Indian species, with many pairs of lfts. very close together, 1/4-3/4 x 1/12-1/8in. rather thin in texture and elliptic to oblong, apex and base blunt and rounded. P. dulcis, Kunth, is a Mexican species somewhat similar to the preceding but with the lfts. slightly more distant although still crowded, 1/4-1/2 x 1/16in., linear to linear-oblong, apex tending to be acutish and mucronulate, the texture more coriaceous. P. glandulosa, Torr., is the common species throughout Texas, New Mex., and S. Calif., also occurring in Mex.; it has more remote pairs of lfts. often distantly so, 3/4-2 x 1/8-3/16in., which, when mature, are longer than in P. juliflora, rigid and linear, those of the young shoots frequently elliptical to spatulate and up to 1/4in. or even more broad, base slightly narrowed, apex mucronulate and usually acutish although also bluntish. P. velutina, Wooton, is a southwestern species which looks much like P. dulcís, but the younger shoots, lvs., and lf.-rachis velutinous-pubescent; lfts.3/16—1/2 X 1/32—1/8 in. oblong, apex rounded, base rounded. Ariz. and S. Calif.
