Morus rubra- Red Mulberry- 5 Gallon


Red mulberry is dioecious – male and female flowers occur on separate trees. You need both a male and a female tree to get fruit and fruit only occurs on female trees. We do not know whether our trees are male or female – they are too young to have flowered.

If you purchase two trees you have a 50:50 chance that you’ll get a male and a female tree. It’s equally likely that you’ll receive either two males or two females.

We often have varieties of mulberry that produce fruit on a single tree, ‘Illinois Everbearing’ being the most common variety. Unfortunately we are sold out of that variety. We will have the variety ‘Wellington’ for sale for fall planting, Septemberish.
