The carob trees surrounding Anogyra village have been harvested for hundreds of years, and this helped make Anogyra village one of the main carob centres of Cyprus.

Carobs are a natural source for minerals such as Vitamin A, sodium, calcium, iron, potassium, Vitamin B and phosphorus. The sweet taste of carobs are a natural replacement for sugar, as it is constructed by almost 50% of natural sugar. This makes it a healthier substitute for use in bread, cakes and pastries etc. The added bonus is that the carob has almost 60% less calories than chocolate.

The Mavros Chrysos Carob Museum and Factory in Anogyra village gives visitors an insight into the history of the production of carob products, most notably Pastelli, a toffee made from carob syrup. The museum also has a factory next door which still produces carob products, and visitors are welcome to sample and purchase the various products.
