St. John’s Bread (Carob) Tree Harvest Season

For the St. John’s Bread tree, also known as the carob tree, the annual harvest season begins from the end of August to the beginning of September. This period lasts about 60 days, during which the fruits fully ripen. The fruit is ready for harvest when it is completely black and leathery. Notably, during the harvest, the tree already bears flowers for the next year's harvest.

The harvest process is often carried out using a bamboo stick to knock the pods from the tree. This is a delicate task because the blossoms for the next year must not be damaged. The pods of the carob tree contain 70% natural sugars and have a honey-sweet taste. This can be well-tasted in the SweetLife St. John’s Bread Syrup, which is made from the fruits of the tree. In addition to being processed into a naturally sweet syrup, the fruit is also ground and used as a substitute for cocoa.

The carob tree is widely regarded as the ideal tree for reforestation in dry climate areas and as protection against forest fires. The root structure helps prevent erosion, keeps the soil intact, and restores the land. In short, a versatile tree!
