Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($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.

I am not sure if I do like it yet, it seems a bit temperamental, so I have moved it to get more sun. Mainly pruning off diebacks.

Dwarf Orange - Cara Cara

I have had one fruiting for 4 years. Ripens at the same time as my Washington Navel. Colours up well and has pink flesh with rapberry flavour. Worth owning!

Unfortunately it died!  Looked great on arrival, but seemd to get root rot after a couple of months and went slowly downhill till it died.  Very sad, but we want to try again soon!
