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 6b-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.
