Mulberry trees are native to tropical climates and produce a sweet multiple-fruit (looks somewhat like a long skinny blackberry). The trees grow swiftly at first but soon become slow growing, a mature tree rarely reaches over 30 ft. Black mullberries can grow in a bushy-like habit if not trained young into a tree. The fruit is used extensively in jams. Mulberries are generally free of pests and diseases, although cankers and dieback can occur. Mulberries like a warm, well-drained soil, preferably a deep loam. Shallow soils such as those frequently found on chalk or gravel are not recommended. The trees are fairly drought tolerant once established. Trees are 2 years old and should fruit in their 3rd year.

Mulberries are prone to desiccation and frost damage when planted from bare root. To reduce the risk of plant loss it is a good idea to thoroughly hydrate the plant and prune back the lateral growth of the plant to reduce the amount of surface area exposure.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
