Resumo: Carob-tree (Ceratonia siliqua L.) is a sclerophyllous leguminous tree species widely cultivated in whole Mediterranean basin. The fruits (a dry pod) are normally used after crushing to separate seed and pulp, and the seed endosperm is processed to obtain a mucilaginous gum, which is then used in a wide range of commercial food products as a thickener and stabilizer. Contrary to other traditional crops, there is an increasing demand for carob products, which represents a potential benefit to farmers and a diversification of farm incomes. However, current information about the ecology of this crop has not yet been integrated and so there are some doubts about the correct management of natural resources, like water and soil nutrients, in order to improve productivity. These items are particularly important in Mediterranean areas where growth and yield are mostly limited by both climatic and edaphic conditions. In this short communication, some data concerning water and nutrients use (particularly nitrogen) in carob-tree are reviewed.
