Pruning after fruiting allows this delicious mulberry to be kept under 3 meters, and also encourages multiple cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. Very low chill so can be grown successfully throughout subtropical regions.
Resistant to both 'Berry Disease' and 'Coffee Rust' this tree was developed and recommended for growing in the Northern Rivers Area by NSW Agriculture Department after extensive trials at Alstonville NSW. An open spreading variety, it is a reliable cropper, producing large flavour-filled beans; it is also the recommended variety for those who intend to harvest mechanically.
This tree has delicate foliage and attractive pale yellow flowers. It produces long green pods that taste similar to asparagus. The peeled roots are used as a substitute for horseradish and the edible leaves make a highly nutritious vegetable.
