The Everbearing Mulberry Tree is easy to grow and produces sweet Mulberries that can be eaten fresh or used in many baked goods. Some Mulberry Trees can get as tall as 60 feet, but our variety only reaches a height of 30 feet, so it is a practical fruit tree for the backyard or smaller garden. Mulberry Trees are fast growers that do best in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6 to 9. You can also grow a Black Mulberry Tree in a large container and bring it indoors in cold months if you live outside of the recommended zones.
Mulberries can be eaten fresh or used as ingredients for fruit salad, jam, and baked goods like pastries and cobblers. Birds love mulberries, the fruit juices can be used to dye fabrics, and in Florida the Seminoles historically used wood from mulberry trees to make both bows and arrows for hunting, and spears for fishing. These fast growing berry trees have been used as privacy plantings, shade trees, and sources of firewood in many areas for centuries.
