Carman is an attractive hybrid mulberry, and a good choice if you are looking for something a bit different from the mainstream fruiting mulberry varieties.

Carman is a Canadian mulberry, and differs from the English ones in several respects. Firstly, and most obviously, the fruits are larger, and creamy-white, rather than red or black. They also ripen a bit earlier than the English mulberries, usually in July.

Another significant difference is that Carman is very precocious - it fruits from a young age, typically around 3-4 years, which is much earlier than the traditional English mulberries.

How to grow

As with all mulberries, for best results plant this tree in a warm sheltered spot in full sun, with plenty of space around it. Avoid pruning as far as possible.
