Rather than for its fruits, White Mulberry trees (Morus alba) are better known for the leaves that are the food for silkworm. In India, White Mulberries still today are therefore ‘food-trees’. The White Mulberry grows larger than its related Morus nigra or Morus rubra. It can grow up to 20 m high, however, if pruned it can be kept down to 5-8 m hight. But on the other hand, it tolerates aridity, heat and poor soil extremely well and can also manage city-climate. Amongst the three different kinds of Mulberries it seems to be the hardiest one, whereat its hardyness depends on the individual plant. Usually, -20 °C are no problem but in some cases these plants have survived even lower temperatures. The name White Mulberry not only comes from its fruits (that might change colour to reddish depending on light intensity but usually remain white). Basically, its the white buds giving the plant its name. According to our opinion, the taste of White Mulberries is even sweeter than Black Mulberries: a ‘candy’ preferably enjoyed straight from the tree. The leaves vary in shape even on one tree from entirely-edged to deeply notched or digitate leaves. Even young trees produce many fruits if they are cultivated from cuttings (as we offer you).
