Mulberry - White Shahtoot

Very rapid grower. Beautiful ornamental weeping habit. Heavy bearer. Birds don't seem interested but watch out for fruit bats. Bullet proof once established. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 04-Feb-2006

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

Excellent mulberry, sugar sweet when firm, no red staining mess so very neighbour friendly in suburban gardens, 30 fruit in first season, birds didnt spot fruit. Inner Melb. verdict - white shahoot is absolutely superior choice to black mulberry | Foto - Pascoe Vale South, VIC 21-Dec-2009

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

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

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.

Cam's Edible Fruits

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.

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

Ru's Edible Fruits
Update: 2943 days 2hrs

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, and I hesitated too long before cutting it back, but it has fruit set on every new season's shoot.

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. Nov 1st 2011- Has grown lateral branches and I managed to find one ( others had dropped off) large, plump fruit about 10 cm long- really impressive!  Tasted sweet but still not ripe enough. Very promising! I am sure will take off during Summer.

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 is there is no way to stop birds as you cannot net the tree. the trees  on the edge of rainforrest so it is basically impossible to get the fruit before the birds.
