Asked for a neighbor to check my silk hope grafts and some of my pakistani mulberries today. He was kind enough to send me a few pics.

Seems like just one silk hope graft might make it :frowning:


  1. On morus platinofolia rootstock. We have green buds.


  2. On morus alba rootstock… seems dead :frowning:

Some of my pakistan types


  1. Uk nursery pakistan planted last year


  2. Belgium nursery pakistan planted just 2 months ago


  3. Belgium nursery White pakistan/saharanpur planted 2 months ago


  4. Clone 10 pakistan type from belgium nursery planted 2 months ago

He also said all my other mulberry varieties are already fruiting also but didnt took more pictures :slight_smile:

Some of my quinces and others flowering

@Carld, just wanted to say thanks for sharing your orchard pics with us. You have some really nice fruit varieties among the best and you’re so lucky because of where you liven the best climate for growing fruits besides California but also because a lots of the fruit varieties that you have they are not available elsewhere only there. Cheers!!!

Thanks @Ruben :slight_smile:

All other mulberries i have no pics as I ran out of time… ahah… but all others leafing and fruiting


#411

I can’t wait for some taste reviews! They look amazing and I agree I think it’s still not evident that the graft took.


#412

Hope it takes!!! My only silk hope chance:/


#413

For now :smile:


#414

My potted 2 White Pakistan and 4 dark Pakistan Mulberries are giving me 5 fruits per node. I definitely have to net them when they are starting to turn pink down the road to keep the birds away. :blush:


#415

Very nice @tonyOmahaz5 :)))
Cant wait for mine to start ripen


#416

Hi Tony,

What size of pots do you have your mulberries on?

Thanks


#417

20 gallons


#418

Silk hope graft done in early march, only survival. Do you think it will take?

First partially mature mulberries from the Portugal variety planted this year. Once the tree gets established it should get much much bigger fruits

. Gelso nero (italian variety planted last year) - it was my favourite last year in the first crop. I think i"ll have an abundant crop this year also… look at the clusters of fruit


All the others are fruiting also, some quite heavily also :slight_smile:


#419

More fruits on the Portugal Mulberry


#420

Today i eat my first mulberry fruits of the year… good ones.
