Mulberry - White Shahtoot ★★★★ 4 stars

Tough and fast growing, fruit tasty and prolific. Don't plant near garden beds or drains, the roots are invasive, similar to figs, they have even grown up into our raised vegetable beds. | David Britton - Wedderburn, NSW 28-Jul-2020

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

Best fruit tree ever, makes enough for us and also great for grey-headed flying foxes that I like to have visit us each year as they are great pollinators and cute too! The tree has been very hardy with water only on the hottest days. Good to minus 9C. | Jane Gardner - Canberra, ACT 27-Feb-2020

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

Growing in a chook pen, but fenced off to keep chooks from the fruit. Produced heaps of sweet fruit in its first year.. more to come soon. It is in heavy cracking clay, endures hot, frost, dry and boggy conditions with grace. Loving it ☺ | Rowena - Ipswich, QLD 15-Sep-2017

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

I call this the 'tree of deliciousness'. Quick grower and hardy. Grows big. Birds and flying foxes don't seem to notice fruit, but bowerbirds cottoned on last season. Want to buy more to plant on acreage for shade in summer | Narelle Smith - Mt Riverview, NSW 26-Jun-2017

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

Growing ours in sandy soil in hot Perth climate. Looking good. Had fruit in our first season. So easy to manage, doesn't need much of anything to grow and look good :) | Mel W - Perth, WA 05-Jan-2015

Cam's Edible Fruits
Update: 3509 days 9hrs

Comments: -

The Red Shahtoot I bought last year produced fruits within 2 months, I was so impressed with the performance that I decided to try out the White Shahtoot as well. Both white and red varieties are said to tolerate clayey soil very well which is great because some parts of my backyard's soil is clayey, and the thought of reaping the fruits of these plants without the need to improving the surrounding soil quality is too good to be true.

I ordered this tree from Daleys during one of the hottest weeks, and yet it looks most healthy. Very impressed. I hope the fruits taste as good as what is suggested.

This is the only tree that has any room in which to grow. It has been a magnificent bearer and the long berries are absolutely delicious. I'm going to prune it a little bit this July to keep it compact and the berries accessible.

Comments: - Beautiful long pale green fruit, very vigorous grower and now over 2 metres tall.  We have sandy soil, old cropping country and the soil is pretty gutless.  The mulberries are holding their own at present.  We do not live at the location and they really only get attention such as mulching and fertilizer twice a year.  Lucky had summer rain over 2017 (this has helped).  Planted March 2015

In two years it has not retained one fruit to ripeness. They all fall off in the wind. However, vegetative growth is amazingly rapid.

Comments: - A big vigorous deciduous tree with a lovely arched branching habit. Fruits prolifically and holds it's crop well. Large fruit that are very sweet, I think they taste a bit liek honey. Too sweet for some folk but if they are picked when still a touch green then more tolerable. Can get further flushes of fruit over summer - especially after some tip pruning.
