Mulberry

Mulberries are easy to grow, abundant, and fast growing, which makes them perfect for containers. If grown in pots, they are continuous producers cycling in and out of flower and fruit when given warm temperatures and adequate light. In the ground, they turn into a large bush. Each berry resembles a large blackberry, but with a bluer tone and a sweet, luscious flavor with just a little bit of tanginess.

 

Variety:

  • Dwarf Everbearing (Zones 5-11)

Care Instructions

Mulberries are extremely forgiving plants. These plants favor full sun exposure, requiring 6-8 hours of sun each day to thrive. Use a high quality potting soil amended with some nutrient rich compost. Newly planted everbearing mulberry trees need to be watered regularly to establish a strong root system. Once established, mulberry trees are relatively drought-tolerant.
