Large, very sweet red mulberry with extremely heavy berry production. These are literally THE largest and BEST native red mulberries we’ve ever seen; exceptional mulberry in every way. Berries can measure over 1 3/4″ long! This is an amazing find we discovered in 2018 in the Highlands, Louisville, KY. Truly a stand-out and superior tree. Fruit quality resembles “Pakistan” cultivar but is a more hardy tree and is a native selection. Varaha is a prolific producer of long, very soft and luscious fruits. Just gets covered! The plump, long fruits are shiny and sweet with that excellent tangy, sweet, cherry-like red mulberry flavor. Edible at red, ripens and sweetens to dark purple-black. So nice! If you like native red mulberries and/or want a heavy producing, long-fruited cold hardy mulberry, this is it! Trouble free. Large, attractive heart-shaped leaves provide excellent shade. Can be kept smaller through pruning, but will become a nice medium-sized (25-30′ tall) shade tree if left unpruned. Pronounced “Vuh Rah Ha”. Peaceful Heritage Nursery Exclusive!
