Description

About the Pakistan Mulberry Tree

The Pakistan mulberry is a deciduous tree known for producing very long mulberries (3 to 4 inches) that are dark ruby red-purple with a sweet raspberry/blackberry like flavor. Some people compare the taste to that of Boysenberries. As a bonus, the fruit juice does not stain! Pakistan mulberries are less juicy than some other varieties, making them easier to use in baking.

This variety was developed in Islamabad, Pakistan, where it is popular throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. Since their introduction to the United States, these mulberries have gained in popularity due to their sweet flavor and low acidity, making them good for eating fresh or making cobblers.

Mulberries are a type of multiple fruit, a term indicating that the mulberry is formed from many flowers forming one fruit, like a pineapple. The mature fruit is known as a syncarp. The Pakistan mulberry has a long fruiting season, typically producing syncarps from late spring through mid-summer.

Using the Fruit

Enjoy these delightful fruits fresh from the tree! Mulberries typically are fragile, making them rare to find in a grocery store. Put into the refrigerator, freeze, or process as soon as possible after picking them when ripe.

Use these tasty Pakistan mulberries to make yummy jams and jellies. A favorite use for them is to bake them into delicious pies! These mulberries can be substituted in most recipes that call for raspberries or blackberries. Try them as a flavoring for ice cream or cocktails or as topping for yogurt or sour cream. Add them to sauces for savory dishes, such as roast pork or beef.

Mulberry fruit contains fiber and is high in iron and vitamin C. It also contains potassium and vitamins E and K. Due to its dark red coloring, Pakistan mulberries contain the antioxidant anthocyanin.
