- Morus, a genus of flowering plants in the family Moraceae, consists of diverse species of deciduous trees commonly known as mulberries, growing wild and under cultivation in many temperate world regions.
- Mulberry trees enjoyed popularity in years past as ornamental shade trees, as well as for their copious edible fruit.
- Mulberries can be eaten raw or made into luscious preserves, pies, and wine.
- Mulberry trees do have redeeming qualities and one of the most outstanding is the minimal care they require.
- They're a good source of iron, vitamin C, and several plant compounds and have been linked to lower cholesterol, blood sugar, and cancer risk.
- These berries have also been used in Chinese herbal medicine for thousands of years to treat various illnesses, though evidence to support their effectiveness is weak.
- Use rich, loamy, and well-drained potting soil that is slightly acidic or neutral in pH.
- The mulberry tree prefers soil that is fertile and rich in compost or manure.
- They generally need little fertilizer if the soil conditions are right.
- An annual dose of slow-release granular fertilizer should be all that's needed.
- Mulberries thrive in full sun but can grow well in partial shade.
- Water your mulberry tree twice a week if it is surrounded by light soils, and water once a week if planted on clay soil.
- It should take you 40-50 minutes to ensure that the root system is completely soaked.
- Each week, your tree should receive at least 1 inch of water, especially during extremely dry periods.
