Black mulberry trees are grown for their ornamental value and delicious dark red, almost black fruits. The fruits are very juicy and have a very distinct sweet-sharp flavour which surpasses that of any other berry. They can be eaten fresh or used in jams. The trees are very attractive with large, heart shaped leaves. Plant in a sunny, well drained site with a deep loam soil. Black mulberry trees are normally (but not always) supplied bare rooted and are approximately 90-120cm (3-4ft) tall on despatch. Trees are available late November to late April.
For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
