Hardy Planting Zone
The mulberry tree does best in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's hardiness regions known between zones 3 and 9.
Like many other trees, the mulberry has a season for blooming. Those who plant them can expect to harvest fruit starting in the middle of June. The fruit will show up until the end of August.
Mulberry trees are brown with green leaves. They yield fruit that ranges from white to ruby, a deep shade of purple and black. Different varieties of mulberry trees will yield different berry colors.
Height at Maturity
Mulberries are often cropped. Those that are allowed to grow without pruning can reach as high as eighty feet under the right conditions. The berries are about four inches in length.
Soil Type Preferred
One of the hallmarks of mulberry trees is their ability to thrive in varied types of soils. They do well in soil conditions ranging from sandy to soil that has lots of rocks. White mulberry trees prefer soil that has more moisture.
Sun or Shade
Mulberries trees do best in places where they can get the most sunlight. They do not want soils that are drenched in water. This is why they do best in areas that have the most sun.
Mulberries are grown in many places around the world.
They are cultivated deliberately for human use. They're also found growing wild. Mulberry trees are found in many parts of the world including Europe, the United States, Northern Africa, and parts of the Indian subcontinent.
They may not reach full height or flowering until a decade past the initial planting.
In China and other silk-producing countries, they are kept on hand to feed silkworms. Mulberry leaves are the only things silkworms eat. The fruit is highly popular. People make the fruit into jams and pies or dry it and use the berries for snacks.
