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.

$44.00

Dwarf Persimmon - Ichikikijiro (NA)

Within a couple of weeks after planting, signs of growth appeared and the tree is now happily putting out new branches and leaves. Looking forward to seeing its progress and fruit. I chose this plant for its dwarf habitat and non-astringent fruit.

Planted at the begining of August, layed dormant until mid October when buds started to blossom. Looks promissing. Customer service and packaging was excellent. Also a big thank you to Jenny for her help and advice.

Almost killed it last summer, but reshot this spring. Grows happily in a small pot with a little bit of compost and manure.  Update Jan17- Had a few fruit but was stressed and dropped them, Sad that I lost a crop but will try again.
