Sweet thorn

Acacia karroo, a.k.a. sweet thorn, found throughout much of southern Africa. According to the Wikipedia page on the species, it is also known as Vachellia karroo, and it has a whole collection of other Latin synonyms. It is somewhat unusual in that it seems to have more (and more confusing) scientific names than common names.
