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 red-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.
