Mesquite is a common name for several plants in the genus Prosopis, which contains over 40 species of small leguminous trees. They are native to the southwestern United States and Mexico. The mesquite originates in the southern United States and northeastern Mexico. It has extremely long roots to seek water from very far under ground. The region covers a portion of the Gulf Coastal Plain in southern Texas. Mesquite is one of the few sources of fixed nitrogen in the desert habitat.
