Had the chance to compare again mulberries from the Shangri la variety and the portuguese unknown variety.
So far the berry of the portuguese is 1000000 times better in flavour, shangri la is quite bland. Its their first year in the ground so i hope shangri la improves in posterior years
Shangri la

Unknown portuguese alba or hybrid
Fruits are a lot firmer and more tasteful, almost resembles the taste of nigras (but not there yet lol)

Other varieties still in early ripening: Oscar, Pakistan, white fruits mulberry, morus rossa, morus bombcys, wellington mulberry and weeping/pendula producing 2nd crop as well as Madeira mulberry
