Easy-to-grow, this abundant producer of sweet and luscious, medium-sized fruit has performed exceptionally well in pots yielding several crops per year, even during the first season. It is best to pick the fruit ripe, as it does not ripen after picking. When not devoured fresh they are ideal in jams, wine and pies. If grown in pots, they are continuous producers, cycling in and out of flower and fruit when given warm temperatures and adequate light. They can be kept under 2’ with moderate pruning. In the ground, they turn into a large bush. Mulberries are known for their immune system enhancing benefits and are thought to improve eyesight. Also, they are disease and insect resistant.
