What is Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Delicious Berries the First Year

“Here we go ’round the Mulberry Bush…” Do you remember singing that song as a child? What exactly is a mulberry? You don’t see them in the supermarket, but if you like blackberries – you’ll LOVE mulberries. And you can grow your own tree! This Black Beauty produces succulent mulberries (that offer even more juicy flavor than blackberries!) The delicious and nutritious fruit grows in abundance from June to August. It’s special because the berries ripen over an extended period of time… unlike many fruits which ripen all at once. This easy-to-grow tree will provide you and your family with enough fruit to keep you happy all summer.

Expect berries your very first year. Plant your tree in full sun to enjoy a delightful display of flowers around May. Then, it quickly sets fruit. You’ll pick a surprising amount of berries, and while they’re absolutely delicious right off the vine, you can preserve them to enjoy throughout the year. Mulberries make tasty jams, jellies and taste amazing in pies.

Majestic Shade Tree

It’s not just a prolific producer of luscious fruit – the Black Beauty Mulberry quickly matures into a stately ornamental tree. Swiftly reaching heights up to 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide, it’s a magnificent sight. Featuring large heart-shaped leaves, some sculpted with lobes, it’s a beautiful tree that offers year-round interest. The bark on younger trees is typically an attractive orangish color, maturing to gray-brown.

You’ll gain significant shade from the sun during the summer months, saving you money on your electric bills, while letting in much-needed sunlight during the winter.

Low Maintenance

Don’t be fooled by its beauty or ability to produce a massive amount of fruit. It’s not complicated to own this tree at all! We’ve groomed it here at our nursery until it’s ready for your landscape. Just plant it and enjoy watching it flower and fruit the first year. Our Black Beauty Mulberry trees are drought tolerant and extremely sturdy – able to tolerate high winds, extreme heat, poor soil, and pollution.

If you want a fruit tree that doubles as an attractive ornamental, then we highly recommend this tree. Always in demand, we tend to sell out quickly, so order now!

How to Grow and Care for Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Everbearing Mulberry Tree (Morus nigra) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-10 outdoors
Harvest time Summer

Planting

Choose a location where your tree will receive full or partial sunlight and the soil drains well.

Dig a hole that is three times as wide as the root ball and equal in depth. Remove your tree from its container and place it into the hole, ensuring it is standing upright and the top of the root ball is even with the ground. Begin backfilling the hole with existing soil, tamping down lightly as you fill. Immediately water the area to settle the soil and help to eliminate air pockets.

Mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture and prevent weeds/grass from growing.

Note: This product grows best in well-draining soil. When you receive your plant, you may notice small, white beads or rocks in the soil – this medium is added to increase drainage and keep your plant happy and healthy!

Watering

Water your tree weekly while it is establishing. Once established, your normal rainfall will be enough unless you are experiencing extreme drought or heat.

Fertilizing

Apply any type of organic fertilizer or slow-release fertilizer in spring.

Pruning

Very little pruning is needed to maintain the tree. Any dead or broken branches can be pruned in spring.
