As the prefered food of Silkworms, Mulberry is an extremely useful herb to have in any garden.
The White fruit is sweeter than the black and tastes a little like it has been dipped in condensed milk.
It shapes easily to fit the area that you plant it in but usually only fruits on one year old wood.
The fruit is taken to benefit the kidneys, and treat weakness, fatigue, anemia, and premature graying of hair.
Mulberry leaves and stem contain high levels of magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and calcium and are typically used to relieve constipation, coughs, colds, as well as providing a soothing ‘Tea’ before going to bed.
These trees are best being potted on until aproximately 60cm high before being planted out in early Spring.
