My friend is looking for a use for 161 acres of land in San Bernardino, California, USA. It is desert and I was thinking that Carob trees would be a great plant to grow there. Do you have a carob tree farmer who would be available to correspond about this?

Hi we have a project in Spain where we are growing carob but in a mixed planting. Carob likes alkaline soil, but copes with low rainfall and hot conditions. But check out mesquite which is native to your area and useful for food.

I would contact the local County Extension Office in your area, they may be able to help you find a local expert.

Here is a link to locate your closest office.
