I couldn’t be more excited. These are from my 6 year old mulberry Tree. It was supposed to be a black beauty mulberry but I bought it from Willis Orchards and the consensus is that it isn’t a real Black Beauty Mulberry (Morus Nigra). But I don’t think it is just a regular wild type mulberry either. I’ve eaten wild mulberries all my life, and I am very confident that these are not the type that grow wild here in TN. The berries a smaller, but most of all they are much sweeter. I’ll post some tree photos later to see if anyone can help figure out what I have.
But holy cow are these good. This tree has, for the first 5 years, only produced tiny little nubs of berries- so small you could fit 3 on the face of a penny. Then all of a sudden this year- year 6- they are much larger and sweeter. These would slightly hang over both edges of a penny if you laid them onto one. And they are sweet as sugar. For the first time in my life, I understand why people like mulberries!
