Prosopis nigra (synonym Prosopis algarrobilla) is a South American leguminous tree species that inhabits the Gran Chaco ecoregion (in particular, the transition zone between the Wet Chaco and the Southern Chaco), in Argentina and Paraguay. It is known as algarrobo negro in Spanish, which means "black carob tree" (the Spanish settlers gave it that name, as they did with many other species of genus Prosopis, because of its similarity to the European carob tree). It is also variously called algarrobo dulce, algarrobo morado and algarrobo amarillo ("sweet", "purple" and "yellow" carob tree, respectively).

dbo:abstract
  • Prosopis nigra, llamado vulgarmente algarrobo negro, es un árbol leguminoso de Sudamérica que habita la ecorregión del Gran Chaco (en particular, la zona de transición entre el Chaco Húmedo y el Chaco del Sudeste), en Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay y Uruguay. (es)
  • Prosopis nigra est un arbre de la famille des Mimosaceae, ou des Fabaceae selon la classification phylogénétique. On le trouve en Amérique du Sud, dans la région du Gran Chaco, en particulier dans la zone de transition entre le Chaco Humide et le Chaco de l'ouest), en Argentine et au Paraguay. On l'appelle (à tort) algarrobo, ce qui signifie caroubier. Connu comme algarrobo negro, on l'appelle aussi algarrobo dulce, algarrobo morado et algarrobo amarillo. L'arbre fleurit en septembre et en octobre, et donne des fruits de novembre à mars. Il croît dans des communautés avec l'arbre appelé vinalillo (Prosopis vinalillo) et avec des palmiers Copernicia alba. Comme d'autres espèces de ce genre, il supporte les climats arides, mais il peut aussi survivre en terrain inondé pendant une longue période. Le bois est châtain, avec des nervures. Il s'utilise pour des meubles, des barils, et a des propriétés tannantes. Le fruit est une noix, avec une pâte dure à l'intérieur, utilisée pour faire de la farine, et une boisson alcoolisée après sa fermentation. (fr)

It is also variously called algarrobo dulce, algarrobo morado and algarrobo amarillo ("sweet", "purple" and "yellow" carob tree, respectively). The tree blossoms in September and October, and gives fruit from November to March. It grows together with the vinalillo tree (Prosopis vinalillo) and under the tops of the palm tree Copernicia alba. Like the other species of this genus, it tolerates arid climate, but can also survive in flooded ground for a long time. The heartwood is dark brown and very heavy, considered noble by local carpenters, also weather resistant, it presents streaks. (en)
