Black Mulberry

Morus Nigra



Black mulberry- this is a unique high shrub, producing edible fruits similar to blackberries. The plant is covered with large attractive leaves - that are quite thick, leathery, heart-shaped, densely serrated at the edges, and dark green. It matures gradually from mid-July to August. The fruits are dark red, and almost black, gathered in a spherical cluster. Mulberry fruits are sweet/sour, which is perfect for raw consumption, or in the form of jams, preserves and juices.


The plant is best positioned in a warm, sunny and sheltered place. It grows well on poor and sandy soils, although it prefers moist ground that is free draining, loamy, and moderately rich in nutrients. The optimum pH should be close to neutral.

Usually the mulberry does not require pruning. Pruning should be limited to sanitary cutting, involving the removal of damaged, frostbitten, and crossed shoots. Young plants should be fertilized with organic fertilizer, such as compost. The Plant is resistant to air pollution. It should be protected against frost during the winter.
