Watering Mulberry Trees

Mulberry trees are drought-tolerant once established, but the following guidelines should be followed to ensure their initial growth and fruit production.

NOTE: This is part 8 in a series of 9 articles. For a complete background on how to grow mulberry trees, we recommend starting from the beginning.

General Guidelines

  • Mulberry trees should receive at least 1 inch of water each week for optimal growth and fruit production. If you receive this amount of rainfall in your area each week, you won’t need to use the hose.
  • During dry spells, fruit may drop prematurely if irrigation is insufficient. Be sure to soak the entire root system deeply to avoid this. The best way to do this is to let your garden hose trickle slowly. This gives the water a chance to soak in instead of running off. You can also use a soaker hose to water several trees at once.
