These dried and hard carobs are also known as St. John's Bread because, according to tradition of some Christians, St. John the Baptist subsisted on them in the wilderness. Carob pods are considered to be a remarkable antidiarrheal. Carob is said to be high in fiber and rich in one class of tannins (polyphenols) that manifest strong antiviral and antiseptic properties.

There are approximately 18-20 in a pound.

***PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF THE HARD SEEDS INSIDE THE POD. THEY ARE NOT EDIBLE***

“WOW! This is the best service ever. I ordered these Saturday, Jan 19 and was told they would be sent out on Monday, the 21st and arrive on Tuesday, the 22. I didn't believe it because Monday was a holiday - no mail delivery. BUT, they arrived Tuesday, by Fedex, as promised. Just terrific. And it's been years since I've had carob, so it's wonderful. I'm impressed!”

“I received the St. John's bread yesterday and am enjoying it very much. I haven't had this item since I was a child in North Dakota in the 50's. I just took a chance to look for it online and it came up right away. Thank you so much for still having this product. It reminds me of my childhood. ”

“Delicious! Carobs grow in my area but it's difficult to climb the trees nowadays. I've been a fan of carob pods since I was a kid. Thanks again”

“Ordered some St. John's Bread (Carob Pods) recently and I can't believe how fast they arrived! The last time I had Carob was in the form of candy a LONG time ago, but never knew where it came from. While researching edible plants I came across the Carob Beans and wanted to give them another try. I am pleasantly surprised at the taste and will enjoy eating them. In addition to your prompt service, I want to thank you for the free sample of the Trukish Figs you included in my order. They are another one of my favorite snacks. I'll be back.... ”

“My order arrived 2 days after I put in the order, amazing! The carob pods are better than I ever imagined, I want to find a cutting from an old tree so that I can start some fruiting. I am also excited about adding spirulina to my diet. Yours seems to be very high quality and also inexpensive. Thank you!”
