Carob Tree

  • Botanical Name: Ceratonia siliqua

Also known as the Locust Bean Tree, the Carob is widely cultivated for its edible pods. The ripe dried pods are ground to powder and used to replace cocoa powder. Carobs are mostly dioecious, either male or female with the females setting the pods. However both are highly ornamental and worth growing as specimen trees anyway. They are reasonably frost hardy and tolerate a wide range of soils types.

Matures 730 days (2 years) from Transplant.
