Mesquite Beans? You Can Eat Those?

If you’re new to the world of mesquite bean products, then you might not be aware of how amazing mesquite trees and mesquite beans can be. Native to the southwestern United States, and found in abundance throughout Texas, mesquite trees are known for their ability to survive the harsh elements of the southwest and usefulness for a wide variety of things.

For instance, generations of Native Americans of the American Southwest used mesquite trees for food, shelter, tools, weapons, fuel, medicine, and even clothing. Even early settlers in Texas continued to use mesquite wood because of its durability.

Of course, here at Cappadona Ranch, we are absolutely obsessed with mesquite tree beans. These edible seeds, which come in pods, have been used throughout history and have gained some attention in recent years because of how healthy they are.
