Carman Mulberry

Mulberry

Parentage: Morus alba x Morus rubra

Description: Carman is an unusual fruiting mulberry, very unique. Produces a heavy crop of large, creamy-white fruits; delicious sweet flavours. Hardy and very productive from an early age. Lovely when cooked into a tasty summer pudding or jam.

History: Developed in Canada.

Mulberry Growing Tips: Tolerant to most soils as long as it's well drained. Plant in a sheltered but sunny position. If hand picked the fruit will be bruised causing staining to the fingers and clothes – children enjoy the experience of course! For a clean operation take a large sheet and lay it under the tree and shake the boughs vigorously. Any perfectly ripe fruit will fall and are subsequently gathered with ease.
