‘World’s Best’ mulberry makes large, sweet mulberries in great abundance. Size of fruit is similar, yet more plump than ‘Illinois Everbearing’ in fruit size and the berries are high quality. Flavor is more sweet and mild and very pleasing. Heavy, copious production for a long extended season. One of the most productive mulberries we’ve ever seen. Tends to grow and perform similar to ‘Pakistan’ but may be more cold tolerant. This one is experimental in Kentucky and the upper South. Tends to bud early. From Thailand, yet cold hardy to zone 6 and is successful in a location in West Virginia! Has lots of potential!
Uses: Fresh eating, good for jams and cooking also.
Resistant to: Mulberries are remarkably free of disease and insects.
Site Selection: Well-drained soil and full sun.
Pollination: This mulberry requires no pollination in order to set fruit.
Zone 7-9 (estimate)
