Mulberry Morus alba L., (white mulberry), Morus nigra (Black mulberry) Morus rubra L. (red mulberry, American mulberry) (Moraceae) Fast Facts: Acres in Washington: less than 25 Growers in Washington: less than 15 Percent of U.S. Production: less than 1% Description of crop: Mulberry plants are large trees that can grow up to 40-60 feet in height. All three mulberry species are deciduous. Commercial mulberry production requires vigorous pruning to keep the tree to a height that can be harvested. They have large leaves that bear fruits resembling blackberries in size and shape. The fruit is a multiple fruit which when immature is white or green to pale yellow with pink edges. In most species the fruit is red when it is ripening and a fully ripened mulberry is dark purple to black. Mulberries ripen over an extended period of time unlike many other fruits which seem to come all at once. Fruit quality is variable and too soft for shipment to market so it rarely enters into commerce. Generally the plants bear heavy reliable crops. The foliage and unripe fruit may be poisonous. Mulberry is grown in Washington State on very limited acreage. Trees are planted as ornamentals usually as a hedgerow and the fruits are used for fresh, local markets. They have improved on the native varieties and the most common variety grown in Washington is the Illinois Everbearing. It has berries that are large, flavorful, nearly seedless and has a long growing season. The fruit tastes like extra sweet blackberries. It does not need cross pollination and growers can harvest mulberries in late June through October, picking the fruit twice a week. Fruits can be harvested by spreading a sheet on the ground and shaking the limbs. From transplant to harvest it is 1-2 years depending on the variety. Mulberry is often associated with the nursery rhyme “Here we go round the mulberry bush”. Key pests: There are no insect or disease issues, however birds are a problem.
