Black Mulberry

Black Mulberry - Morus nigra

Medium-sized, spreading tree which makes a beautiful specimen, year-round, with its gnarled branches in winter, and handsome leaves in summer. The Mulberry produces berries when the tree is seven years old and they look rather like a loganberry. Purplish to black, sweet, tangy and juicy, they are a great treat, very rarely found in shops. can also be grown as a large bush. Disease resistant and trouble-free; prune as little as possible, as pruning cuts ‘bleed’.
