I found this mulberry along the highway, it has been ripe for about a week now. This is super early despite a warm winter...I have seen any other ripe mulberries on any other trees in the area. Our mulberries usually are not ripe here in Houston Zone 9a until mid April. Does anyone have mulberry ripening in their area now? I did some air layers and took some cuttings, hopefully this is truly a super early specimen. Early Mulberry.jpg

I started picking my Shangri La  on March 4th weekend. This is in Matagorda Tx about 90 miles SW of Houston.

I've been eating ripe mulberries for the past few days. No idea what variety. It was labeled "black mulberry" when I bought it from Rohde's Organic Plant Nursery in Garland, Texas a few years ago. I'm in the DFW, Texas area(7b/8a?).

Are mulberries tasty? I have never had any before, they look really good, like blackberries on a tree! What do you guys think, since you have all tried them before?

Justin - Since you pointed it out, I'm been keeping an eye out for mulberries. I have seen a lot of the local native varieties that are ripe, almost everywhere that I have been in the last few days has had ripe berries.

The ones I have eaten didn't taste as good to me as a blackberry or dewberry, but they still had a good flavor.

I'm in Southern Louisiana and I've been finding lots of wild mulberrys fruiting near my work. Not sure of the variety though.

I personally love them! I used to eat them as a child on my way to school, picking them off trees on my way. Better flavor than blackberries and sweeter.  To grow a tree just plant a cutting from a new branch. Keep it moist as they are easy to root.
