I love mulberries. When I was young my grandmother had several that she pruned short to have horizontal branches. We could reach the mulberries as children and loved them. This one looks so much fun with its long berries, and will grow in zone 9 where I now live.

Is your Pakistan Mulberry female?
natasha f on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Because it is self-pollinating, it is dioecious (male and female flowers on one tree).
Would this fruit in April in zone 6b?
Karen B on Jun 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It could, depending upon how warm the spring temperatures are. It's more likely to ripen in May where you are.

Delicious mulberry!
I have three Pakistan Mulberry trees growing in containers. The mulberries of this variety are about two to five inches long and have a rich flavor that tastes like a combination of raspberries and grapes. Very delicious! The taste, I'd say, is right up there with the Boysenberry. The Pakistan Mulberry trees grow fairly fast here in Southern California and they fruit about twice a year; once in April and then again in October. I highly recommend this variety. I'd like to buy a few more trees in the future, and if possible, make some mulberry cobblers, pies and jam.

Great purchase!
I was a little hesitant to buy a Mulberry online, but I have to admit it's hard to be more pleased with the plant I received. Within a month of planting the little twig I received, it sprouted beautiful leaves and long strings of flowers from every leaf bud. I enjoyed a little bit of delicious fruit the very first year!
The tree grows very fast and I had to trip it back a few times to allow the trunk get stronger and be able to support the branches and leaves when the winds come. One year later the tiny twig is about three meters high and the trunk is around two inches in diameter at the base.

Pakistan Mulberry
Purchased both the Pakistan and Illinois mulberries. Starting 3rd growing season now and both have an abundance of berries on them. Fast growing, attractive trees. would recommend either tree.

Pakistan Mulberry
Great buy. I've actually eaten only one berry already. Nice, sweet, and looking for more as my tree matures. Looks like three more on the same tree. They are still too young to call this a crop. But thanks. Love you guys.

Fantastic!
I love this Mulberry, it grows like a weed, the deer would eat it to the ground if I unfenced it but I'm on to the deer. In fact I planted it and an ever bearing Mulberry near the woods of my garden and orchard to lure the critters away from my vegetables and roses. It is cold sensitive and needs covering in North Florida winters. I'll be glad when it's too big for the deer/cold to hurt, perhaps next year, it grows fast.

Might try it again sometime
This specimen never really flourished in its first year, and in the spring it did not come back at all. No apparent reason. It's the only thing I've ever bought from Stark's, though, and so I'm chalking it up to something I did. Native mulberries around here seem to grow anywhere a seed lands, but maybe I picked the wrong location for this tree.

Great healthy tree!
it is being a year as I purchased this little tree. It bloomed first years still in AZ, we moved with it to TX and it is doing here even better. I love to buy plants from Starks, it is always nice to deal with honest people! Thank you Starks!

Pakistan Mulberry - deer love leaves too much
The plants were healthy and started off well. Unfortunately the deer in my area seem to love the leaves far more then other mulberries and repeatedly stripped the plants bare. While I was hoping to grow them, due to the deer problem I have been forced to settle for the more common mulberries which seem unaffected by the deer.
