Ceratonia siliqua (species) (Ceratonia (genus), Fabaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of tree native to the eastern Mediterranean region and cultivated elsewhere. It is highly drought resistant. The tree reaches about 15 m (50 feet) in height, has glossy evergreen leaves, and produces long leathery pods that contain up to 15 hard brown seeds embedded in a sweet, edible pulp. The ripened pods are food for animals and also ground for a variety of uses by humans. The seeds are ground to produce a gum. The seeds were a standard of weight measurement in the ancient world, from which the concept "carat" is derived. The common names referring to locusts or St. John's bread come from the belief that the so-called "locusts" on which John the Baptist fed in the Biblical story were carob pods, not grasshoppers. There are various other references to the tree in the Bible.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Boomsoort die inheems is in het oostelijke Middellandse Zeegebied en die elders wordt gekweekt. Hij is zeer goed bestand tegen de droogte. De boom kan ongeveer 15 meter hoog worden, heeft glanzende groenblijvende bladeren en produceert lange leerachtige peulen die maximaal 15 harde bruine zaden bevatten in een zoete, eetbare pulp. De gerijpte peulen worden gebruikt als diervoeder en vermalen voor verschillende andere toepassingen. De zaden worden vermalen tot een gom. In de Bijbel staan diverse verwijzingen naar de boom. Zo verwijst het synoniem naar de overtuiging dat Johannes de Doper zich in het Bijbelverhaal voedde met deze peulen.
