Mulberry (Morus alba & Morus nigra)
Large heart-shaped leaves cover this strong & fast growing attractive tree. Pendulous seedless fruits are similar in size and shape to boysenberries. Fruits are sweet and delicious and vary in color from white to dark purple. Early bearing trees can be kept to a bush, but some varieties when left un-pruned can make great shade trees up to 40ft. Fruits are great for fresh eating and the leaves of the tree are used to feed silkworms and in Chinese medicine. Our Mulberry trees always draw compliments for their stature and beauty and are a magnet for kids to climb when fruiting. Trees are traditionally planted around chicken yards, as all birds love the fruit. Self-fertile.
