BLACK MULBERRY (MORUS NIGRA)

£20.00


Black mulberry-Morus Nigra produces delicious plump black juicy edible fruit when more mature for both birds and humans.  Black mulberries develop a spreading head of tangled branches and vine like leaves. They often lean or even recline to one side in old age (300 years or more). Originally from West Asia, this species is said to have been in Britain since the sixteenth century.

White mulberry produces leaves for silkworms to eat. Both black and white mulberries have hard heavy golden brown timber used for marquetry, inlay work and veneer oysters. The standing trees however usually have such heritage and amenity value that they are very unlikely to ever be cut down for their timber.  Both White and Black mulberry trees can produce good edible fruits for either eating or for jam making.
