The Black Mulberry, or Morus Nigra, delivers sweet black Mulberries on an easy to grow tree. While many Mulberry Trees can reach heights of well over 60 feet, this variety will only get to about 30 feet tall, making it great for the home gardener. The fast growing Mulberry Tree is suited to grow in the ground in USDA Zones 7 to 11, or in a large pot then moved indoors in colder areas.
Mulberries are eaten fresh and used in salads, jellies, jams, and desserts. They are a favorite food of birds, the berries have been used to make dye, and the wood was traditionally used by the Seminole Indians to make hunting bows. Since they are fast growing, they are valued for making shade, privacy buffer zones, and windbreaks.
