I am researching various varieties to help initiate an orchard program in my city.
I am intrigued by uncommon fruits and uncommon varieties.
Is anyone growing ‘Hicks Everbearing’ or ‘Stubbs’ Red Mulberry? If so, PLEASE TELL ME WHERE YOU GOT IT! I can’t seem to find any nursery or plant retailer that carries it. Why is that? If anyone knows how to get these varieties, I would love to know.
Also, are there any other pure Morus Rubra varieties that you would recommend for zone 6?
I acquired some Hicks Everbearing mulberry scion from my local University extension, Highmoor Farm in Monmouth, Maine. Grafted them onto morus alba tatarica roots and got a few takes…I will be visiting there tomorrow to see the plum trial block (and hopefully tastes a few plums), so maybe I will inquire about the parent Hick’s tree.
