Variety description: A hardy and productive selection. Medium sized black fruit ripens on the tree. This variety is slower growing than other mulberry cultivars and is therefore easier to maintain as a smaller and more accessible tree.
Site requirements: Full sun location. Like other fruit trees, mulberries will do well in fertile, well drained soil. Soil pH of 6.5 is ideal.
Hardiness: USDA zones 5-9.
Size at maturity: With training when young and semi-annual pruning, mulberries can be maintained at 15-20'.
Plant size: Grafted tree, 2-3' tall with strong central leader.
Nursery availability: Spring 2020
