Mulberries

Just plucked

My mother's mulberry plant with fruits

The birds will eat them too

Half eaten mulberry - sourish sweet, I like eating them.

  1. I like mulberry too. The dark coloured ones will taste sweeter. Your mother's tree looks very healthy and fruitful.

  3. We've two big pots outside the house. My missus harvests them, dunno what she does with them. Great to blend them to make ice-cold drinks.

    2. If we don't pick them, the birds will eat them so we usually do not wait till they turn black on the tree.

    3. So do you eat them fresh often? Or just leave it to your wife to make some products out of them?

  6. I have never seen a mulberry before. I don't think I want to eat them, the strands sticking out of the fruit makes me feel 'geli' :/

  7. I didn't know you could grow mulberries locally....successfully! But the ones I've seen are not so elongated and don't have so much hair sticking out like that (even if there are hairs, they are very fine). Ooo...you can make a lot of goodies with those! :)

  8. I plant them too. But so far the birds has gotten all the (not many!) fruit before I can get to them. :(

    1. Maybe put some fruiting natural organic fertilizer will help it to have more fruits.

  15. Aiyoh. My mum's mulberry tree still small. Need to wait for it to bear fruit. The previous one has overgrown so mum chopped it off. I tasted my mum's mulberries once.

    1. Can just trim and not chop the whole tree off. Do you like what you taste for the mulberries?
