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. 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 purplish red colour, when they should be picked and eaten soon after. There flavour is truly sublime, and packed with lots of sweet juice.

  • Self Fertile.
  • Fruiting should commence 2 - 3 years from planting.
  • Please note that the foliage on young Mulberry trees is often deeply lobed and does not resemble that of mature trees.
Available from approximately mid November 2018
