Description

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 mulberries can grow in a bushy-like habit if not trained young into a tree. The fruit is used extensively in jams. The trees are fairly drought tolerant once established. Trees are 2 years old and should fruit in their 3rd year.

Mulberries are generally free of pests and diseases, although cankers and dieback can occur. They like a warm, well-drained soil, preferably a deep loam. Shallow soils such as those frequently found on chalk or gravel are not recommended. 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.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, 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. If you'd like us to split your shipments, please contact us at (800) 784-1722 or orderdesk@groworganic.com. Additional shipping charges will apply.
