Argentine Mesquite

Prosopis alba is a medium-sized tree, measuring between 5 and 15 m , in height and 1 m in diameter, though such tall specimens occur very rarely at present. The trunk is short and the treetop is globular, sometimes reaching 10 m in diameter. The bark is thin, brown-grayish in colour, with streaks, and it has tanning properties.

Prosopis alba is a South American tree species that inhabits the center part of Argentina, the Gran Chaco ecoregion and part of the Argentine Mesopotamia. It is known as Algarrobo Blanco in Spanish, which means "white carob tree" (the Spanish settlers gave it that name because of its similarity to the European carob tree). Other common names come from Guaraní: Ibopé and Igopé. More
