Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$34.95 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

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 )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

Jujube

$19.75

Seedlings plants can be used to graft other varieties onto or grown on for fruiting your own unique variety. Also known as Chinese dates the jujube is a small deciduous tree or shrub reaching a height of 10m usually with thorny branches. Fruits are oval 1.5-3cm in size. When immature they are smooth-green, with the consistency and taste of an apple maturing dark red to purplish-black and eventually wrinkling to look similar to a date. There is a single hard stone similar to an olive stone. Weed Warning - Trees do tend to sucker from their roots around the tree and these suckers are spiny and can be a nuisance. In the dry tropics, trees can adversely affect agricultural land by forming dense thorny thickets. Best not to cultivate soil around Jujube roots to encourage suckering. Collect all fruit to prevent birds spreading seed. They make great container plants and this helps to mininimise suckering. Cross pollinate for best results.
