Last Saturday I attended the Mulberry tasting at Wolfskill. We tasted 8 or 10 varieties fresh and dried. I had heard that they produced wonderful fruit so I planted one last spring but had never ad the chance to taste the fruit. Fortunately one of my favorites was the Pakistan variety which is the one I planted.

I spent many hours in Mulberry trees as a child in Bakersfield and Chico.

While living in Athens, Ohio, the locals told me that if you have cherry trees, plant a fruiting Mulberry nearby. The birds will prefer the Mulberries to the cherries.

I learn more from other Master Gardeners. Thanks for sharing your comments!

I have a beautiful, mature mulberry tree - black, I think - in my front yard, and yes, it does make quite a mess. At least the neighbors have now figured out not to park under it this time of year! (A few years ago, an angry neighbor quietly hacked off a few limbs one night to make a clean parking space for himself.) I've only harvested the berries once but didn't have much success in making anything useful out of them. I really should try again.

I live near what I thought was a fruiting blackberry tree without thorns... I have been very tempted to eat it's brightly colored fruits. This story helped me identify it as a mulberry and feel less scared to munch on it. Thanks.
