Mulberry trees are large members of the Moraceae family that range in height from 30-50 feet. While some mulberries come in the form of small bushes, the fruit-bearing types are large trees. They are known to be hardy, self-pollinating, deciduous trees. The fruit from mulberry trees ripen in midsummer and have been known to produce delicious, mild, and sweet drupes that resemble blackberries.
Mulberry trees will grow on many types of soil as long as a good drainage system is provided. Ensure they are not in an area where flooding is common as they do not tolerate being engulfed in water. When possible, well-drained, deep soils are preferred.
