Hi friends. How are you all? I hope everything is going well. Wild trees that we have found in Mediterranean area. It can survive in dry areas without irrigation with low precipitation. Morocco is home to over 2,500 hectares of crops carob. Crops that generate an output of thousands of tons of pods made from the pulp and seed.
The pulp can have multiple uses, including the production of flour and chocolate. The seed for his part is destined for processing into food and pharmaceutical gum. The bark is also used. It is sold on the local market for livestock feed.

The red pulp is rich in carbohydrates. The seed contains thickeners. The plant is also rich in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, silicon, iron and pectin. The seed of the plant is used in modern medicine for its anti diarrhea. In traditional medicine, the pulverized seed of the plant is used to treat diarrhea in young children, and stomach pain in adults.
