Mulberry Tree Description

Mulberry Tree

The mulberry tree ( Morus nigra) is native to North America. Its flowers and fruits add to the beauty of your garden. These trees are fast-growing trees, especially when young. They are hardy, low-maintenance plants. Once fully grown, they do not require extensive care other than occasional watering and pruning. 

These small-in-size, shrub-like trees have a thick tan, gray ridged trunk making the tree's appearance prettier by contrasting with the flowers.

All black, white or red trees produce fruit as clustered berries regardless of the species. The red and black fruit is composed of clusters of drupelets that combine to make a single delicious fruit that you can enjoy when ripe. Black, red and dark purple fruit-bearing trees look beautiful as the pink, white, purple, or purple-black berries hang from the tree's branches.

Though these trees can survive at a wide range of temperatures, growing them in sunny areas is best. They require full sun with partial shade to grow adequately.

These trees can stand droughts and increase in poor soil as well. Yet, deep loam with an acidic pH of 5.5 to 6.5 is ideal for the sustainability and growth of the tree.

Mulberry trees grow as high as 15 meters, depending on the species

The typical height for the black tree is the lowest at 30 feet tall. While red fruit trees grow up to 70 feet, mature white trees reach 80 feet and are the most elevated. You can choose the one that would go well with the other plants in the garden and enjoy the mulberry fruit. 

These trees' leaves are light green, alternatively arranged, and come in different shapes. The cordate, acuminate, dentate, lobed, or unlobed leaves give each plant a distinct identity and help add variety to the plants in the backyard. These trees are grown in varying seasons, depending on the temperature in your area.

They are commonly ready for harvesting in late spring. Harvesters either handpick the fruit or shake the branches to get the berries. This tree offers generous sweet, delicious fruit in spring and shade in summer besides attracting pretty birds to your garden.

Many people buy these tree seeds to get fresh fruit, while others find it a gorgeous addition to the garden. This tree is an excellent choice to add to your plants for a lovely feel and enjoy the fruit every season.
