Carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua). This tree is cultivated for its edible seed pods, which taste similar to sweetened cocoa. Carob pods were the most important source of sugar before sugarcane and sugar beets became widely available. The seeds are processed for the use in cosmetics, curing tobacco and making paper.
