 Carefree Tree with Delicious Fruit

The Red Mulberry tree, Morus rubra, is a fruit-bearing tree that is not only lovely, but useful to both humans and wildlife. 

The most attractive feature of this tree is the fruit it produces. 

Look closely in the spring and you’ll notice small, green catkin-like spikes amid your Red Mulberry’s branches. These will soon turn into the raspberry-like berries that you’ve been waiting for. 

Each berry is a fascinating site to behold as it transforms through deepening shades of red then to a deep purple.

When you step outside in the morning, you’ll likely hear the chirps and cheeps of the neighborhood birds filling your Red Mulberry tree as they share in the bounty.   

Mulberries can be eaten directly from your tree, or save some for pies, preserves and wine. They’re a delicious sweet treat on a summer day.  

Your Red Mulberry tree has a rounded crown and grows to about 50 feet. The 5 inch oblong, toothed dark green leaves are particularly interesting because each tree can have several different shaped leaves. 

When fall approaches, the leaves turn a lively yellow to brighten your yard.  

A Red Mulberry tree is an essential addition to any yard where an easy-to-care-for fruit tree is desired. Simply plant and wait…soon you’ll have a beautiful tree and delicious harvest for yourself and wildlife.
