If your client is interested in a low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and unusual fruit tree, a Morus nigra | Mulberry is a great candidate worth considering. Mulberries are fast-growing, fruit trees that can reach 50′ tall with a crown height of about 5—6′ from ground level. They tolerate poor soil and will also accept soil with moist conditions. These beautiful trees perform best when pruned once a year during the winter season. After the leaves have fallen, trimmed tree branches can be used to make durable baskets or other agricultural crafts. Mulberries set fruit without pollination and only require about 400 hours of chill time between 32—45° F. Their fruit resembles a rustic blackberry which turns from pink to red while ripening, then dark purple or black in late spring to early summer. The result is a sweet, delicious, unique berry flavor when fully ripe.
