I’ve thought about adding some type of berry to my orchard. I like the idea of the long summer ripening that I could get from mulberries. My only experience with mulberries was a large wild mulberry that grew on the ridge behind my home as a child. I remember them being very tasty. I don’t think I had a very refined palette but they tasted like the best blackberries back then. I also remember the tree was really large and quite messy. The ground below the tree was a stained sticky mess. Haha.
Fast forward to today and I realize I want some type of delicious berry. Disease And pest free is a plus. My concern is that I don’t want a huge tree like what I remember as a kid. Ideally I’d like to grow it in a pot. Worst case I’d like a tree that I could maintain in ground at less than 8 feet like the rest of my small orchard.
Is this doable? Is Illinios Everbearing my best option?
