Description

Trunk Size
The vast majority of our trees will ship with a 5/8” trunk diameter, however size may vary slightly based on availability during the season. If they vary, most are larger (3/4” or 1”), and rarely some are smaller (1/2”).

Trees Begin Shipping in mid-December!
Our trees ship on a first-come, first-served basis as soon as they come into stock in mid-December. If you are unable to plant your trees right away, read our instructions on heeling in your trees.

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 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 (888) 784-1722 or orderdesk@groworganic.com. Additional shipping charges will apply.

Shipping Information

Bare Root Trees - Ship up to 10 Bare Root Trees for $29.99!
We ship our bare root trees on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in mid-December. We are unable to delay shipping due to many factors, most importantly limited storage and our warm California climate which causes bare root trees to break dormancy much sooner than in colder areas (bare root trees must be dormant to best survive shipping). If you are unable to plant your tree(s) right away, read our instructions on heeling in trees. All of our bare root trees come with free professional pruning, which will put the tree's stored energy first into root growth rather than leaf production. Our bare root trees ship in special boxes with their roots bagged in moist sawdust to help ensure their survival during transit. Up to 10 trees can fit in a box (due to their size, nut and multi-graft trees count as 2). Each box ships for $29.99 via FedEx Ground (or FedEx Home Delivery) to the lower 48 states. Bare root trees cannot ship via USPS, and cannot be shipped to P.O. boxes. We are unable to ship our bare root trees to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. Bare root trees cannot be combined with potted trees.
