The crown is supported by a thick trunk with rough brown bark and sturdy branches. The carob tree is cultivated on a large scale, but also still grows wild in eastern Mediterranean areas. Carob trees can survive long periods of drought, but to grow fruit for the pith they need 500 to 550 millimetres of rain per year.
