Question & Answer
I'm not clear whether this plant will grow in Melbourne. From: HEATHMONT VIC
The dwarf black mulberry is not the best choice for Victoria as it is very low chill and breaks dormancy too early for your southern climate. These are the best choice for Victoria #MulberryBlack2310 #MulberryHicks2300

Mulberry - Hicks Fancy
Hicks Fancy do NOT grow in places where you get frosts in October. All the buds go black an fall off. Then the tree dies. English Mulberry does not. | Ed Koetsier - Pyalong , VIC 14-Nov-2010
