Fast-Growing Tree with Edible Fruit
The White Mulberry is a fast-growing, deciduous tree that produces an edible harvest. Plant one in a side yard where you can enjoy its features without concerns about dropping fruit.
Your Mulberry can reach a height of 50 feet with an equal spread. The crown tends toward a spreading nature which is popular with wildlife. Birds will enjoy visiting your yard for the shelter and food your tree provides.
One inch raspberry-like fruits ripen in early to mid summer, and attain a delectable white-pink hue. You’ll know the fruit is ripe when your tree is alive with the excited cheeps of the songbirds that have come to feast.
You’ll enjoy the fruit for a snack right from your very own tree, or save some of the sweet berries. Homemade Mulberry preserves or wine is hard to come by and is a special, rare gift for friends and family.
The White Mulberry’s autumn raiment includes various shades of yellow, adding a bit of fall color to your landscape.
The White Mulberry is wonderful as a shade tree or windbreak. It requires very little care and can tolerate drought, frost or poor soils.
If you’d like a durable tree that produces delicious fruit every year, look no further than the White Mulberry.
