A very rapid growing deciduous small tree, mulberry fruits very early in the spring and is an excellent wildlife food source at a time of year when there is little ripe fruit available. There are three species: Black, White, and the native Red Mulberry. Mulberries are an important early-season source of food for wildlife, deer, and game. Everbearing Mulberry is often smaller with a more bush-like growth habit. Very easy to grow. Cold hardy to USDA zones 7-10. New trees can produce fruit in 2 years depending on care and climate. The success of new trees is heavily dependent on the care received during and after planting.

Fertilization Do not fertilize at planting. Once the trees are established, fertilize in early spring (Mar-April) as growth begins. Do not fertilize in the fall, which could promote late season tender growth that can be damaged by early frosts.
Watering Newly planted trees should be watered regularly. This is the most critical step in the establishment of your new trees. Please see the Watering section under "How to plant and grow" in our Learning Center.

In Spring we ship bare-root, dormant trees. All plants are dipped in a root gel before shipping and wrapped in plastic to retain moisture.
