Description

New Product!

Small space requirements, but full-sized berries. Shakespeare showered attention on his mulberry tree, which produced his most favorite fruit. Pick baskets full of large, black mulberries so sweet there’s no need for sugar — mulberry lovers know this fruit is to be prized because its intense flavor is like no other. A lovely specimen tree whose fruit will keep you in jam and wine all winter long. Berries also freeze very well. One of the few trees that actually prefers heavy soil to achieve its lifespan of a hundred years or more. Grow it as a multi-stemmed bush or train it to a tree form. The tree may be kept as small as 2-6' tall by pruning after fruiting. Self-pollinating. Morus nigra.

I noticed that the pH requirements were lower than other mulberries for the dwarf variety. I live west of 35 in the north Dallas metroplex and mulberries grow all over here but I believe our pH my be higher. Do you know if it has been grown successfully in this area?
Ellsbeth8 on Aug 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: All mulberries do best between 5.5 and 6.5. This is suited as far south as zone 10, which includes Dallas, so as long as you keep the soil pH down in that range, this little tree will do great.

Growing like a weed!
I purchased 3 dwarf mulberry trees to start then saw how well they grow and purchased 3 more. I really did not have much faith in mail order trees. These changed my mind. After planting them in compost and watering daily the 4 ft. specimens that arrived at my door are now 8 ft. tall. My only concern is how to cut them back they are growing so well. Yes I will buy more next spring!

mulberry dwarf everbearing
This is the best tree i have ever grown. The fruit is delicious and reminds me of blackberries. It is real organic food and so good for you. Did you know that only a short grass grows under a mulberry tree? This is a heaven sent plant. Imagine the less yard mowing you could enjoy by planting these mulberry trees along the border of your property? Grow edibles not lawns. The land was sent by God to grow fruit and nut trees i believe. Imagine having shade in your front and backyard for family gatherings. This tree provides shade but is never a danger to your house roof as it does not grow too tall. A person would not want to park a car underneath this tree (save that for your boxwoods). Mulberry trees grow well without any care. Im surprised that the city doesnt plant more of these near the busstop benches for shade for all the handicapped riders. i encourage everyone to make plans for this editable fruit.
