Eat-Mesquite With the monsoon a month or so away, it is harvest time in the Sonoran desert! The pods of the Mesquite, Desert Ironwood, Palo Verde and many more indiginous plants are not only fit for human consumption, they also slow the body’s intake of sugars, so they are beneficial to people with hypoglycemia or diabetes. And they are delicious to boot!

The Weekly Green spoke with Brad Lancaster, co-founder of Desert Harvesters, a Tucson-based non-profit organization promoting the cultivation of indigenous crops.

Join a guided harvest tour on June 18, bring your own pods for milling at the Annual Mesquite Milling  & Wild Foods Fiesta  at the Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market  and have a beer with wih native wild ingredients at the Desert Harvesters’ Happy Hour at Tap & Bottle on June 26th!
