Dwarf Everbearing Mulberry Tree

plant spacing: 1 plant per 20 square feet
sunlight requirements: 6-14 hours
look out for: whiteflies
harvest notes: berries fall off the tree when ripe, pick daily
There aren’t many berries to be grown in here south Florida. Sadly, most berries -
blueberries, blackberries, raspberries - don’t appreciate our heavy doses of humidity, but the Mulberry doesn’t mind one bit! This perennial, medium sized shrub, or tree, grows quickly in most soil types and is easily propagated from cuttings. Once you have one tree, it’s easy to have many. Planting this tree in full sun will help with fruit yield, but it will still do well in partial shade. They have also been planted as a food source for silk worms for over 5,000 years! Mulberries can be eaten fresh, used as fillings for tarts and pies, as a base for syrup or to make jams and jellies.
Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We ship plant orders every Monday. Due to the nature of shipping plants we only offer expedited shipping for our live plant orders. Our returns & exchanges policy is also quite strict since its hard to control the quality of a plant once it leaves our facility, however we do our very best to make sure that each and every customer is satisfied with their plants. Read more about our policies here.
When you receive your plant its critical to get it out of its box and into the light the day it arrives. It will also want to be removed from its compostable plastic wrapping and given fresh water to drink. Keep in mind, this plant was grown in the tropical humid climate of South Florida, so if it's terribly cold or dry where you are it'll need to be hardened off before planting outdoors.
