Very interesting mulberry, do u know something more about it, cold hardiness for example?


#287

Nothing… its from turkey, so it should work here in Portugal also. Lets see how it.goes. i"ll keep updates on it here.
Probably i"ll buy more to graft if they dont root


#288

I’ve had those in Tunisia before, super super sweet. I wouldn’t be able to tell their cold hardiness unfortunately.


#289

How long did they take to reach you please?


#290

They were sent on 22nd September and arrived yesterday the 10th of October.
2 weeks

#292

WOW that’s great! You got a lot of plants! Did you like the fruits?


#293

Luis, these are the seeds you sent me. 2 of them crumble in pieces in shipping but i still planted them and the divided pieces are also rooting… :slight_smile:
Ive goot 10 rooted seeds :slight_smile:


#294

Also i bought a reptile heat mat and a temperature and humidity reader to help in the mulberry rooting.
As i know some mulberries are very easy to root (oscar and shangri la i got like 99.99999% sucess), others i got 0% sucess (white pakistan, etc).
I am not sure how easy is this pink mulberry to root so i decided to add a heat mat to try and improve.
Any ideas how much the temperature should be around the rooting area for better sucess??


#295

That’s great! And you eat the white pulp?


#296

At this moment the readings i get are:
. Outside the pot temperature 20.1 C
. Inside the pot on the rooting level 20.4 C
. Humidity inside 63%

Hmm… should i put a clear bag on top of it? I did in the past and got a lot of mold


#297

Maybe like this is better… but i"ll be vigilant of the mold


#298

My next mulberries arriving in a few weeks :)))
