The carob tree offers deep shade for warm, dry climates. It is native to the eastern Mediterranean where winters are mild and wet and succeeded by a very long, dry season. Adapted to poor, rocky ground that is well drained, it solves a landscaping challenge in the sandy-gravelly soils of desert gardens. This is a medium-sized evergreen tree with dense branching and large, glossy, leathery leaves.The Carob tree blooms in spring with small flowers that release a pungent scent. They are followed by thick, brown, hand-length pods that are highly nutritious, hence the common name, St. John’s bread. The sweet pods are the source of culinary carob. The roots of carob trees are avid water-seekers and problematic in close quarters with sewer lines, buildings and paving. The tree is often overlooked because of the unpleasant flower scent and the pod litter, but beauty and drought resistance recommend it in dryland gardens. It has proven to be a good park and parking lot tree, and in open space it offers considerable habitat value. Use as a standard shade tree, a multi-trunk accent or massed and trimmed as a hedge or screen. (source: learn2grow.com)
