It's a sad fact that the White Mulberry has got a reputation as the 'poor relative' of the Black Mulberry. In reality it is just as worthwhile - and because it is slightly sharper (but only slightly) in taste than its black relative many people may actually prefer it.

A mature White Mulberry is a thing of beauty - and certainly would not look out place as feature in an ornamental garden. They are of Asian heritage and produse a medium sized tree. and can even be found growing in Canada. Mulberries will never make it as commercial fruit as they usually crumble as you pick them - but don't let this put you off, this is a fruit to enjoy straight off the tree.

White Mulberry leaves are also the favourite food source of the Silk Moth, which is something King James should of researched a little more before having a whole field of Black Mulberries planted to feed Silk Moths - they will not eat Black Mulberry leaves!

Mid Summer the fruits mature to a purplish black colour, when they should be picked and eaten soon after (yes white mulberries do still ripen to a purple colour). There flavour is truly sublime, and packed with lots of sweet juice.
