Dwarf Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Mulberry taste similar to blackberries, and they will stain your hands and lips like black berries as well. They are excellent eaten right out of hand, but they are often used to preserves, jellies, and jams. The eaves of the mulberry are cultivated in many parts of the world as food for silk worms. Everbearing produces small fruit almost year round.

Easy-to-grow, this abundant producer of sweet medium-sized fruit has performed exceptionally well in pots yielding several crops per year even during the first season. If grown in pots, they are continuous producers cycling in and out of flower and fruit when given warm temperatures and adequate light. They can be kept under 2’ with moderate pruning. In the ground, they turn into a large bush. Mulberries are known for their immune system enhancing benefits. They are also thought to improve eyesight. Mulberry plants are disease-and-insect resistant and do well as potted plants.
