Description

A delicious and productive southern mulberry resistant to disease.  Excellent quality, large mulberries ripen for a long season, up to several months! Silk Hope mulberry is similar to Illinois Everbearing in flavor, appearance, and fruiting habit. A J Bullard, a North Carolina fruit enthusiast, found the original tree in Silk Hope, NC. An excellent choice for the South because it is not as prone to getting popcorn disease, which is a fungal disease mulberries can get in the South. Reports say it is very resistant.
