Jerusalem Mulberry

Mulberry

Description: Jerusalem is a large fruiting form derived from an old tree in the city of Jerusalem. A fairly new variety that produces large sized, delicious fruits; sweet and juicy! Tasty when eaten straight from the tree or they can be cooked into sweet dishes, jams and liquors.

History: Originates from an old mulberry tree in the city of Jerusalem.

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.
