Land Line - Sweet Crop
You may well have come across Australian-grown carob.
In the past couple of years, the two main growers of the shiny, fibrous pods have marketed carob powder, syrup and milk bars.
Located mostly in South Australia, the industry's still small, but it boasts an advanced processing plant to deal with the increasing carob tonnage.
