Morus nigra is rightly loved for its heart shaped serrated green leaves. The bark is gnarled, giving even younger trees an old and historic appearance. The berries emerge throughout the summer time, ripening to deep purple, luscious and juicy fruit in September. In spring, cut grass and spray with seaweed solution, come summer collect the fruit as they drop and enjoy the leafy glade of its leaves. Not much pruning is necessary but thin and remove any dead or diseased growth in early winter. Very old trees need careful attention to check and protect them.
As a mature tree, the Black Mulberry has a spreading, rounded shape to it which is very attractive. It is slow to produce fruit but the cultivar, King James I, has hurried up the fruiting process. Mulberries are still much appreciated for their beauty even without fruit.
This tree will tolerate most soil conditions, preferring a lighter well drained soil and a warm aspect. They are rarely bothered by frost as they late in coming into flower and leaf. Mulberries have an advantage in that they do not suffer from many pests or diseases. Their roots are quite brittle so care must be taken when planting, and the ideal time is in early spring. It is an extremely long lived tree which is a great addition to a garden, bringing interest all year round.
We also have in addition to the standard Mulberry:
Mulberry – Giant Fruit
Giant Fruit, also known as Mulberry Pakistan, produces an unusual, heavy crop of fruits that are 2-3 times the size of regular mulberries. Juicy and delicious with a good sweet/tart flavour, one of the sweetest of all mulberries. Black in colour. Can be eaten fresh from the tree or cooked into a tasty pudding, jam or liquor. The tree itself is relatively hardy, slow growing, with a neat dome shaped head.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
