This sweet juicy fruit tastes like lemonade, is devoid of bitterness and can easily be eaten as a fresh fruit. The tree often has thorns and bears several heavy crops each year. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf lemonade tree that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.
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.
These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards, pots and patios, we consider it a must have dwarf fruit tree for the home orchard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree but if some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop.
