CRETA CAROB IN CRETE, the carob trees thrive in difficult soils and like arid conditions that are naturally free of fungus and pests.

 

Thus, the uses of chemical sprays are not necessary on Crete Island. The tree grows 15 m in 50 years. It does not bear fruit for the first 15 years. However, once fruiting, it will yield one ton of beans in one harvest.

Carob pods are harvested in the middle of September. The growing carob pods look like green broad beans but they turn to a dark glossy brown as they age. Each pod can contain up to 15 seeds.

Carob is up to 8% protein. It contains Vitamins A, B, B2, B3 and D. It is high in Calcium, phosphorus, potassium, Magnesium and contains Iron Manganese, Barium, Copper and Nickel.
