The Gemara in Bechoros 8a states that a carob tree takes 70 years from the time it is planted until its fruits develop, and the "gestation period" of the fruit (i.e., the span between when the flowers emerge and when the fruit develop -- Rashi) is three years. Hence, it takes 67 years for a carob tree to flower.
