Ceratonia siliqua

The Carob Tree is a member of the pea family, and is widely cultivated for its edible seed pods which can be ground to create carob powder, an alternative to cocoa powder. This tree is often multi-branched and is sensitive to frost. The Carob Tree’s densely packed branches and leaves make it a perfect shade tree.
