Dwarf Mulberry - Black

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. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers du

Great tree to have in a community garden. The deciduous habbit muches the garden and the bat droppings are really high in nitrogen | Penny Hoswell - Wollongong, NSW 14-Dec-2007

It a must have tree if you have kids and room. Plant it far away (so the kids feel like it's an adventure). Yes they will get dirty but it's the memories they will have that will be priceless. Make sure you take a photo when their faces are purple. | M - Shailer Park, QLD 17-May-2008

Late frosts can severely impact on yield. Watch for satin bowerbirds which will strip a tree of fruit. Good as a windbreak - fast and hardy | Reville - Tabulam, NSW 03-Jun-2008

Mulberries make an ideal choice for any garden because:
The trees are easily managed,
They make great ornamental shade trees with their huge heart shaped leaves
As deciduous trees they get new leaves in early spring but allow the sun to shine through during winter.
The fruit forms from late spring through to early summer.

Mulberries Love:
Deep, fertile soil.
To be well watered, especially through summer.
Protection from coastal winds.
