Grown for its cloves, this resistant tree that can be found all along the Mediterranean border, is slow-growing. It can thrive in poor, dry soil. Its hard, red wood is much-sought after by those who make furniture from wood. It produces grains that all have an identical weight. This is why it served as a unit of measurement (Carat) for precious stones!
