availability of dwarf mulberry

    12 responses

nigel starts with ...
any thoughts on the perferred options for dwarf mulbeeries. does the fruit of the dwarf red taste as good as the fruit of the dwarf Black. I am thinking of getting a dwarf tree. I can prune the dwarf black down to the size of the dwarf red. However if the dwarf red tastes just as good I need not have the extra pruning work.

Are dwarf red trees available currently?
Thanks

Hi Nigel, there is a Dwarf Red Shatoot available - I can't comment on the taste from personal experience, but it's supposed to be very sweet and with elongated fruit.

The fruit of the dwarf red shahtoot is incredibly tasty- juicy and very sweet even when still quite green (and also much longer than your usual mulberry!). Shame I only had two fruit off it last summer but it was only its first year (one of my many Daleys trees to flower in their first year) :)

hi nigel,
i have a couple dwarf blacks that you
could have some wood from to strike.

also a white shahtoot in a large
pot would be easy to keep small.

Hi Nick, I see that you are in Altona. Very close to me. I have a white shatoot and would like to try a red one. Would you kindly contact me on facebkm at hotmail dot com please? Thank you.

Sure thing Michael, you might want to come over when its later in spring because the buds are already bursting (besides, I reckon softwood cuttings would take better). I wouldn't mind a white shahtoot cuttings if you have any :)

Bought a dwarf black mulberry, but backyard fuhrer changed mind because it apparently stains the clothes too much.

If someone in Sydney wants it, write me at **removed**

Hey Tommoz, tell the fuhrer that green mulberries easily remove the stains of the ripe ones and it may get a reprieve.

Hi Nick, I'm Michael from Altona Meadows. I just chanced across this webpage again and realised you had replied to me. I was checking my mail but heard nothing from you so I forgot about the whole thing. It's been like over a year. Are you still interested in a swap between that white and red shahtoot mulberry? I think this time I'll leave down my mob so you can txt me if you like. 0421 900 669. Cheers and happy New Year.

Happy new year Michael, terribly sorry about the wait- I'll send you a text as soon as we get some cooler weather (it's supposed to be above 30 for the next week or so...).

Hi Nick,

No worries. :) I remember to check here today. Last week's 40 degs days were terrible. Lots of my plants were damaged and a few killed. I'm really annoyed. Spent months growing a plant only to see it die in a few day's heat. My mulberry was unharmed. I'm gonna cut back my mulberry by two third. So I have HEAPS of cuttings. I read that they are difficult to strike from cutting. But no harm trying. You can have one if they strike. Otherwise, I can come and graft one onto your tree. Have you tasted the fruit from your red dwarf shahtoot yet?

Cheers,
Michael

Looking for some Shahtoot cuttings!

I found that the Shahtoot Mulberry was very easy to grow from a cutting previously and would like to grow some more. If anyone has some pieces from a small branch they can spare please let me know. Also Ice Cream Bean is just as easy from cuttings.

Please email me at lintonius at Hotmail dot com.

I may have some things to swap also. Thanks.
