What are the pros? delicious out of hand
What are the cons? I'm too short to reach most of
I have a Mulberry tree. they grow wild around here. well, kind of, the birds LOVE mulberries and the seeds aren't digested, simply planted with adequate fertilizer!! my tree needs to be pruned again. we topped it a few years ago as it was growing under the power line. when you top the tree, at whatever height, it causes a great deal of bushing.
When the fruit comes on, and it comes n fairly early in the season, it falls off the tree just as it ripens. so you need to grab them before they are completely ripe. I have eaten them right off the tree since I was a kidlet. deep purple and deliciously sweet, they never make it to the kitchen. what I try to do, now, is spread a sheet on the ground and shake sections of the tree. this helps the fruit on upper limbs fall off so that you can catch it.
the leaves are what is used for silkworms as well as papermaking
