Product Description

Mulberry Tree-Size is 1-3 Feet in Height

With different types of mulberry trees, one can choose from those with berries of black, red or white. These trees are part of the same family, Moraceae, that produces jackfruit, figs and breadfruit. Birds enjoy their fruit as well as people who harvest the berries to eat. If grown from a seed, trees may take 10 years or more to begin to bear fruit. The "weeping" and "contorted" versions of this tree do not bear fruit, so those wanting to harvest the berries should not select them. The black-fruit tree has been recommended for many home gardens; its fruit is considered the highest quality, although it is native to Asia and the Middle East.

These trees do best in full sun with space of at least 15 feet between other trees. In dry conditions, they may need supplemental watering. They live longer and do best in areas with higher amounts of rainfall. Excessive pruning is not needed and may make the life of the tree shorter.

The black berry of M.nigra attracts bluebirds, tanagers and orioles in the spring and early summer. Similar to the blackberry, the black mulberry can be added to pancakes, pies, cobblers and smoothies as well as tea. Berries from M.alba can range from pink, black or purple to white; some say they are not quite as sweet as those of the black version of the tree.
