Silver Creek Nursery Ltd.

Illinois Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Illinois Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Morus rubra x Moris alba. This vigorous variety is grafted onto Russian mulberry stock for hardiness. It produces large 3-4 cm fruit which ripen throughout the month of July, sometimes longer depending on the season. Sweet and flavourful, these berries stain your hands and mouth with their deep purple pigment, and are a special treat thanks to their poor shelf life and therefore lack of grocery store comparability. Every farm should have a mulberry tree: part of the seasonal flow at a neighboring farm includes their white-furred farm dog turning purple for the month of July while she basks in the shade under their big old mulberry tree! The branches may be used in basketry.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 5b

Recommended Use: fresh eating, juice, cooking, baking, basketry

Ripens: July

Pollination: Self-pollinating

Size including pot: 80-120 cm one-year whip

Shipping vs. Pick Up

CLICK HERE to see how shipping compares to pick up.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
