Carob Tree
Carob Tree

  • Price: $10.00

It grows well in warm temperate and subtropical areas, as well as some temperate areas of Australia and tolerates hot and humid coastal areas as well as surving frost. It is a drought-resistant species. Trees prefer well drained loam and are intolerant of waterlogging, but the deep root systems can adapt to a wide variety of soil conditions and are fairly salt-tolerant.

Comments Warnings : Carob has excellent nutritional value with 80% protein, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, barium, copper, nickel and vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D. Traditionally it has been used in healing the body in retaining water and thus binding together loose stools produced during diarrhoea. They do not bind proteins but do bind some toxins and thereby inactivate these toxins in the body. They help inhibit the growth of bacteria in the body.
