Description

An excellent protector tree. This productive variety is preferred by birds and squirrels over other fruits and berries, so it provides a great way to lure them away from your other harvests.

Matures to be 35' tall. Ripens in mid June through August. Self-pollinating. Morus alba x Morus rubra
