DWARF MULBERRY - BLACK Morus nigra

Mulberry Dwarf Black on tree Exploring the Dwarf Mulberry Tree

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply 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.

The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )

Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Grafted) 10/10

Gabbie's Edible Fruits
Update: 1331 days 19hrs

Comments: -

I bought this in late summer 2009 and I transfered it into a large pot and got a small handfull of berries. It's now mid August 2010 and it has more than 100 fruit growing that should be ripe in a few weeks and I am hoping for a second crop in mid summer. A fantastic little tree and I can't believe that it has produced fruit so quickly a hit with my three year old I can tell you. He is eagerly awaiting until the berries are ripe to eat them which means they must taste pretty good if my fussy eater loves them. I am considering getting a couple more and gifting them to friends and family for Xmas.

This post is really helpful as I want a mulberry tree but don't have anymore place for another tree in the ground. What size pot are you growing this in? How long can the tree be left in the pot? Any special potting mix to be used? Whats the name of this variety? Cheers Abhi
Gabbie says... [1331 days 19hrs ago]
I am just using a large pot I got from bunnings its probably 40 - 50cms high you would need to transplant the tree every 2 or so years into a larger pot. Another idea instead of a pot is bonsai bags I have a couple apples and madarins in bonsai bags and they are growing quite well. i just used an all purpose good quality potting mix with some compost but the dwarf black mulberry that i have is quite tolerant. Except for some chook poo and water I don't do anything to it.

Itdepends1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1260 days 9hrs

Purchased this in 2008 as I enjoy mullberries but don't have the room left in the yard for a full sized tree. Growing this in half a wine barrel will keep the tree dwarfed and I'll still get a "taste" of fruit off it.

Reasonably heavily pruned due to being in pot. Grows faster than the Black English and isn't as suitable for pot culture in my opinion

2010- I've revised my opinion of this- the vigorous growth means heaps of mulberries off the new growth. Pruned this in late summer when I repotted it into a larger pot (note to self- termites love half wine barrels left in damp gardens). Got an early autumn crop of mulberries from the new growth!!

Lovely little tree this, unfortunately the fruit fly are attacking it.

UNBELIEVABLE crop this spring (2012) no special treatment but I did cut back quite hard in winter.

trying to keep on top of the fruit fly, it's not practical to cover the tree so am alternating weekly sprays of naturalure & another one, and picking up fallen fruit. Seems only moderately successful.

About to plant in ground.  Has taken off since planting in ground.  5 new branches and a fair bit of fruit.

The new branches are lower than the original branches and seem to be a lot longer as well.  I don't think this tree is grafted - hope not or I these branches will take over the tree.

Just tip pruned above branches which they they shot laterally.  Been 6 months since then and the tree is already covered in masses of leaves and fruit that just starting to change colour.  Very satisfying plant to grow.  Has grown 0.7m since tip pruning.

Has grown to about 4m x 3m and fruited twice this season.  My kids love picking the fruit off and eating it (4yrs and 2yrs) - May 2011

Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Seedling)

Sserendipityy's Edible Fruits
Update: 1198 days 10hrs

Comments: -

This plant I bought on a whim as I passed it at a nursery. I didn't  realise there were dwarf fruit trees until then. It has begun my love of fruit trees.

The plant is rather bare at the moment and a couple of leaves are yellow. It is growing in a pot with store bought compost and potting mix. It has been raining steadily for around a month now and although it has good drainage i think this may be part of the issue.

The actual fruit reminds me of hot summer days when a child.

I also  love mulberries fresh or baked in filo pastry with freshly whipped cream.

I believe the mulberry died because I didn't account for climate differences between Northern NSW and Southern WA. I recieved it in winter and planted it in a very exposed spot. Although in dormancy when I recieved it I know it was alive, it just didn't resprout in spring. I think I should have let it adjust to cooler weather somewhere protected from winter storms!

What a wonderful little tree.  Fruited from the first season and hasn't looked back - just keeps on giving.
