Morus Nigra

    2 responses

Granpa starts with ...
I purchased a Morus Nigra (Black Mulberry) as a compact version of the larger variety due to the size of my yard. It's been in the ground for about 6 months, no fruit but it is growing enormously, about 2.5 metres at present. I bought the tree from Bunnings as a 'compact' tree, but this does not seem to be the case. I Googled Morus Nigra and Wikipedia states this variety is a deciduous tree growing to 12 m tall by 15 m wide, not quite what I expected. I would be most grateful for some advice on what to do.
Many thanks
Brian

Hi Brian - thanks for not making us call you 'Granpa'.

Re your giant dwarf: you can prune it to the size you want it but you would be kept busy as it grows fast as you have found. I gave up bossing mine and gave it away.

You might prefer to get yourself a Red Shatoot Brian - they are naturally dwarfing...they make their appearance in the nurseries in winter...and good fruit from most accounts.
I also have what I think is a "Black Beauty" mulberry tree - which is also a naturally small tree and a (very messy) black fruit.

The current "Black Mulberry" being sold at many nurseries doesn't appear to be the authentic "English Black" either....
