Since none of the trees have produced pods, it seems that environmental conditions must be the culprit. Our best advice is to make a visit to your local extension service and find out what might be preventing flowering. However, it takes 3 to 5 years to bloom and fruit.

Perhaps this article will shed some light on the problem: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/mesquite/growing-mesquite-trees.htm
