Parkinsonia Florida: Blue Palo Verde The Blue Palo Verde is a species of palo verde native to the Sonoran Deserts in the Southwestern United States and Northwestern Mexico. Its name means green pole or stick in Spanish, referring to the green trunk and branches, that perform photosynthesis. Growing up to 40 ft in height, it has bright yellow flowers which cover the tree in late spring, and are followed by seed pods or beans that were used as a food source, and wood for carving ladles, by the indigenous Quechan, Mojave, and Pima people. The Pima and Tohono Oʼodham both ate the beans when soft and immature and cooked whole; they also ground the ripe seeds into flour to eat as atole or porridge. The flowers are sweet and edible either fresh or cooked.
