Fast growing deciduous fruit tree. 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 fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same size as that on the large black mulberry. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not eaten fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. Fruiting: late spring (Oct / Nov)  & autumn (Feb / March).

Category / Uses: attractive specimen and productive fruit tree with multiple crops..

Position / planting / care : prefers a sunny position, protected from strong winds, in well drained soil. Keep soil moist but not wet. Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. Can be grown in a pot.
