Mulberry Tree

Category

Mulberry Trees have delicious juicy crimson black, red or white fruit that is rarely seen on the supermarket shelves hence the need to grow it yourself. For an easy to grow fruit tree that will reward you with bountiful crops of fresh fruit in spring, mulberries are a must in the backyard.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$49.00 ($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.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$39.00 ($23.90-$79.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree but if some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.

Mulberry - Black English

$69.00 ($54.00-$69.00 choose a size)

Large quantities of good sized, sweet, black mulberries are produce in late spring. The tree is a large spreading deciduous shade tree with an attractive form. Well suited to colder climates.

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

$79.00 ($21.90-$79.00 choose a size)

Large, sweet fruit can reach up to 10cm in length. Delicious eaten fresh but can also be sundried and eaten as a sweet. Medium sized, spreading tree with a weeping habit, excellent shade tree. Birds love them too so make sure you cover them if you don't want to share. You can also get multiple crops by pruning immediately after your first crop.

If you live in Adelaide or colder regions of Australia, dont buy the Dwarf Black Mulberry.Because the fruit sets to early and doesn't ripen properly.You would be better of with a Black English Mulberry or the Hicks Fancy variety.

Mulberry - White

We have a white shahtoot growing 'espalier' style in the narrow and otherwise useless space between our house and the neighbours. Stunningly good producer of incredibly sweet fruit.

Late frosts can severely impact on yield. Watch for satin bowerbirds which will strip a tree of fruit. Good as a windbreak - fast and hardy

It a must have tree if you have kids and room. Plant it far away (so the kids feel like it's an adventure). Yes they will get dirty but it's the memories they will have that will be priceless. Make sure you take a photo when their faces are purple.
