Many consider this the very best mulberry variety. Long, dark purple berries with superior flavor and heavy, very long-season production. Berry production stretches (in KY) from early June till August (WOW!), with most berries ripening in June-July. Has a very pleasing, strongly sweet grapey flavor with a nice tang that makes them more palatable and much tastier than most wild berries. Berries are impressive size at 1-2″ long. Can be kept at shrub size with yearly pruning and heading, for easier harvest (this is what we do). Excellent fruit tree for new gardeners, children, landscaping, processing needs (pies, jams, wines), and those looking for easy-to-grow plants and satisfying fruit growing. Did we mention they’re also totally delicious? Highest quality berry and fruit variety.
