Carob is a large, evergreen tree, cultivated for its edible pods that can be used as a chocolate substitute, ground to powder or eaten fresh or dried. It grows to around fifteen metres tall, with a lovely spreading crown, making it a good shady tree for large gardens, farms and parks when it is mature. As it grows to maturity, it is good for a taller growing hedge.
Carob is a drought tolerant plant with few pests and diseases. It is frost and humidity tolerant. They grow best in a well drained loam, and dislike waterlogged conditions. Best in warm temperate, subtropical and Mediterranean climates. The tree doesn't like waterlogged soils, but will tolerate some saltiness.
