Mulberry - White Shahtoot

We have white shatoot in northern Pakistan - giant trees and the way we harvest is to have one person climb the tree and 2- 4 people stand below with a stretched out double bed sheet - the person up the tree stamps on a branch and the mulberry rain falls

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.

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.

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

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

HILLARYS, WA, Australia

very fragrant and sweet and yummy when fully ripe.  A lot of fruit will drop before ripening though which is disappointing.

in good conditions this is a very large tree. even with heavy pruning the mulberries are beyond reach. fruit is very nice but kind of one dimensional kind of like sugar. whereas a black mulberry has depth of flavour. the problem with such a large tree ...

Huntingdale, Vic, Australia

From all accounts a beautiful, decorative, fruit tree providing shade in summer and deciduous.  Still small at the moment, with new leaf buds about to burst.  I pruned the top of it to try and get it to branch more.  Seems to be happy where it is. N...

South Maroota, NSW, Australia

Planted 2 years ago as a knee high plant and forgotten about. Now just over five feet high, but yet to fruit. Doing very well in a westerly aspect with little or no additional watering. No pests or diseases, but needs a trim.

Lismore, NSW, Australia

This was bought partly to replace a beautiful white cedar shade tree we removed because of its poisonous berries. Pruning is more to create a strong 'climbable' frame for the kids. Other than that, maintenance is zero. It grew like mad last wet summer,...
