Pakistan mulberry trees

Morus nigra

The Pakistan mulberry, also known as the Giant Fruit mulberry, is notable for the very large size of its fruits. The fruits are much longer than those of regular English mulberries.

The fruits can be used for eating fresh when fully ripe (as black as possible), or for cooking if picked slightly under-ripe.

In warmer climates Pakistan mulberries ripen earlier than the traditional English varieties, but in the UK should ripen in early August.

Pre-ordering

You can pre-order now for delivery from late August / early September 2021 for pot grown trees (or late November / early December for bare-root). You do not need to pay at this stage - just add items to the basket and checkout as usual.

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.

These trees are either grafted on Morus nigra rootstocks or grown from cuttings. In either case the trees are slow-growing but will eventually get very large - 6m and more.

History

This variety is believed to have originated in Islamabad, Pakistan. It is often known as the Giant Fruit mulberry. It is thought to be a hybrid of Morus nigra, the traditional mulberry grown in England (which originates from Persia).
