Was planted by previous owners. A gnarly looking tree that fruits well. Lovely complex mulberry flavour and is my favourite of our types. Very messy fruit though - and the birds love them too.

Slow growing - in my dog run as a shade tree with the bonus of getting berries. dogs chase the birds away, and sometimes get a high protein meal in the process. Very tasty little fruit.

I have no idea what variety of black mulberry I have but they are absolutely massive and I have never seen any bigger.  Mine was grown from a cutting given by a friend.  I hack the tree back every year after fruiting and bend down all the fruiting w...

Actually this is my neighbours tree, a large portion falls on my side of the fence.  I prune and take care of my side, little I can do for the other side.  The kids love picking the berries in summer.  I don't think the berries are as plump as th...

Has a few fruit set already, only been in for about a month. Hopefull will stay manageable in a pot. Got about 20 mulberries (October) which were delicious & have pruned back a little to see if I get more fruit later in summer

Our black mulberry is where you will find a lot of them- over the chookyard. A perfect symbiolic relationship. It is only a year old and has the first green fruit on its branch. Trying to decide whether to let grow up as a single trunk or prune it to b...

My tree was planted in nov 2008 it was just one tall stick about 150cm high, now it is sept 2010 and it is close to 3m high and it is covered with fruit on every branch. we had about 15 fruit last summer but we are in for a good feed this summer.

Eat fruit straight from the tree while working in the shed or enjoying the back yard, I have espalliered the tree to cover an unattractive fence and as it is a fast grower it has achieved this well. Low maintenance and easy to look after.

Bought two bare rooted via mail order from ebay in April 2010.   (They were grown from cuttings.) Immediately planted into large pots and tied to stakes. Put in a wind protected location but with little sun they looked to struggle. Moved so they are...

Again I don't know exactly what sort of mulberry I have. I grew it from a cutting from my old tree (that stayed at my old house) which in turn was grown from my dad's tree which HE struck from a cutting from a job site when I was a little girl.They lo...

 About 3 yrs old, alive and starting to make progress. First few fruits summer 08. Tough as old boots and you can grow them near walnuts - one of the very few trees that will.

Eaton, WA, Australia

Purchased this in 2008 as I enjoy mulberries but don't have the room left in the yard for a full sized tree. Growing this in half a wine barrel will keep the tree dwarfed and I'll still get a "taste" of fruit off it.Reasonably heavily pruned due to be...

This is a very old tree I inherited with the purchase of the property 15 years ago.  The original tree is no longer there but a side shoot which is now an old tree.  It's got this beautiful long weeping style about it.  The fruit is not as good as o...

This tree is about 6 years old, but I prune it back twice a year, once really hard in winter and again after it has finished fruiting in spring, as this stimulates another crop.
