i had some good results with softwood cuttings vegetative reproduction of Morus alba, but not sure if this will work also for Pakistan mulberry. And it is easier to get some dormant mulberry cuttings and keep them to spring, with softwood cuttings you must work immediately. How long are your cuttings in soil now?
I'm in zone 5b and plan to try some of these mulberries too. I wanted to say hello, my family originally comes from Slovakia, we have been here now over 100 years. At that time it was Czechoslovakia. I'm a 2nd generation American now.
Hello Drew51 ,
it is nice to hear that your family comes from Slovakia, do you know some Slovak words like "ahoj" or "dobry den"? just joking, but it is really kind that you replied. Hope you will have good experience with mulberry in zone 5b, it should be without problem with usual Morus alba or Morus nigra, there is one village here (maybe 5b zone) with more than 400 Morus nigra old trees in vicinity, really rare to be so spread in such small area, should it be environmental protected as historical heritage. Here, Morus species were introduced first for leaves production as a feed for Bombyx mori - silkworm, not primarly for good fruit quality. Some produce good tasting fruits but some of them are without fruits - maybe male plants. I know that there many new selection with bigger fruits and good taste of them.
