Mulberry trees are not trees you want to plant in small gardens. They can reach heights of between 30-50 feet over 20 years of growth. However, if you do have the space, they make wonderful trees for children to climb once established are great fun for the kids if you ever want to keep silkworms!
Mulberries are also self-fertile, so you don’t have to plant more than one tree to get the soft, luscious fruit every year. Best of all, you don’t have to wait 20 years before it begins to fruit. Your tree will fruit the very first year, and in each successive year the crop will be better than the last. It will fruit well for at least 40 years.
