Delicious Berries on a Majestic 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 site. 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.
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! We'll carefully pack and ship your tree the next business day.
Everbearing Mulberry Tree Pollination
Everbearing Mulberry Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Everbearing Mulberry Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

One Tough Tree
Planted this tree one day before completely UNFORCAST heavy snow. We bagged it up and staked it up, poor thing just looked horrible. Very cold the next two nights, then finally nice weather like the day we planted it. Bag off, all the leaves fell off from freezing. Two weeks later it started sprouting all new leaves, and now a month later it is thriving, growing, putting out leaves, and looks fabulous! What an ordeal!
Plants arrived in great shape and are doing well
Fantastic tree, bare roots was not a problem. Already has fruit.
