Morus nigra. Soft and sweet, with a hint of musk, these purple-black mulberries preform well potted, making them ideal for gardeners with space constrictions. They do not like living in a pot, but make a lovely summer patio plant kept at 4 feet for optimal fruiting, and cycle in and out of bearing fruit for up to 10-12 week periods or longer, if kept suitably warm. Grown outdoors, they will grow into a 6+ foot bush, and the branches may be used in basketry. Pruning should be done while the tree still growing to form the frame of branches for next years blossom buds.
The second photo shows the berries in different stages of ripeness.

Thanks for your interest in this bush. Unfortunately our crop didn't grow so well, and they are unavailable this coming spring season. However, we have many little plants sprouted and in the works for spring 2022! Stay tuned!
