BLACK MULBERRY - EVERBEARING
BLACK Everbearing Mulberry fruit are very large, very sweet, very juicy and super flavourful. This mulberry tree produces these delicious black berries from June to Sept with new fruit ripening every day. Yes birds love the fruit as do raccoons, deer and just about every critter. Not to worry though, with 1000's of berries ripening over a long period of time there is plenty to share and farmers can plant a hedgerow of mulberries to act as a "trap crop" to save their market crop from being eaten by scavengers. Great tree for the organic minded grower as our mulberries have shown no disease or insect problems for the last 25 years ....in spite of drastic climate change over that time. Our original mother tree of Illinois Everbearing mulberry has acclimatized to our -35 C winters(Zone 3) so well that now, when we reproduce new trees from her genetics, we find the new "baby mulberries" are very hardy like their mother. Hard to find a better berry plant.... tasty, high in nutrients and easy to pick. This self-fertile mulberry is very ornamental with its huge leaves( high in protein) and long drooping branches. Tree size is considered small.......4-5 meters tall and 3-4 meters wide. Our trees are hardy to -35 C (zone 3) and very quick to start producing mulberries..... usually the same year after planting!
