Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Grafted) 10/10

I bought this in late summer 2009 and I transfered it into a large pot and got a small handfull of berries. It's now mid August 2010 and it has more than 100 fruit growing that should be ripe in a few weeks and I am hoping for a second crop in mid summer. A fantastic little tree and I can't believe that it has produced fruit so quickly a hit with my three year old I can tell you. He is eagerly awaiting until the berries are ripe to eat them which means they must taste pretty good if my fussy eater loves them. I am considering getting a couple more and gifting them to friends and family for Xmas.

This post is really helpful as I want a mulberry tree but don't have anymore place for another tree in the ground. What size pot are you growing this in? How long can the tree be left in the pot? Any special potting mix to be used? Whats the name of this variety? Cheers Abhi

I am just using a large pot I got from bunnings its probably 40 - 50cms high you would need to transplant the tree every 2 or so years into a larger pot. Another idea instead of a pot is bonsai bags I have a couple apples and madarins in bonsai bags and they are growing quite well. i just used an all purpose good quality potting mix with some compost but the dwarf black mulberry that i have is quite tolerant. Except for some chook poo and water I don't do anything to it.
