Sources of Mesquite Flour & Mesquite Cooking
While we do usually sell mesquite flour made from pods harvested by hand in Tucson, Arizona, directly from native velvet mesquite (Prosopis velutina) trees, we currently do so only at our annual Desert Harvesters Mesquite Fiesta held annually in late June. It usually sells out fast, so get there early!
