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 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.
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!
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.
Planting & Care
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Fertilizing: Apply any type of organic fertilizer or slow-release fertilizer in spring.
4. Pruning: Very little pruning is needed to maintain the tree. Any dead or broken branches can be pruned in spring.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- Mulberry tree
When I received my EMT it had small green pods on sticks! A few days later those pods sprouted to leaves and it's been growing like crazy since! All of the plants I get from FGT have been great!
Love the way my tree was packed for shipping
The tree looks healthy and was well packed in shipment. It arrived in good condition and was planted immediately.
I love this mulberry tree. it’s beautiful quick growing easy to plant and I can’t wait for the berries to grow. I’ve only had it two weeks and it has leaves galore.
It arrived within 2 days of ordering and already had leaves, I planted it with compost, composted cow manure and top soil. So far it is doing very well and is thriving
