Mulberry trees


Mulberry trees are the ideal Mediterranean trees for any home garden. The mulberry trees, which are widely spread in the Mediterranean area and provide shade, can also be planted in this region.

More useful information about Mulberry trees

This is especially true for the varieties that you can find here in the Lubera® Garden Shop. Both the zigzag mulberry as well as the black mulberry Morus alba pendula are grafted to remain small, making them ideal for smaller gardens or front gardens.

Mulberry trees in the Lubera® garden shop

Mulberries, which are related to fig trees, are among the classics of fruit trees. The white mulberry tree is world-famous as a food supplier for the silkworm. More importantly, however, this mulberry tree also bears fruits that are white or, in the case of the black mulberry tree Morus nigra, dark purple to black. Planting a mulberry tree is a piece of cake if you give it a sunny and somewhat sheltered place in the garden. It is also very easy to prune the lush mulberry tree because it grows back quickly.

Mulberry trees are especially popular because of their beautiful, serrated leaves and their fruits. The inconspicuous mulberry tree blossom is not very important. It appears in the middle to late spring, soon after which the mulberries ripen. If you want to buy a mulberry tree, Lubera®, the fruit tree nursery from the Rhine Valley in Switzerland, has just the right plant for every location.

Our assortment of mulberry trees

Mulberry trees are one of the few Mediterranean deciduous trees that also thrive north of the Alps. In the Mediterranean region, they grow in Italy, southern France and Spain as shady avenue trees and resemble the sycamores that are so typical in southern France. The mulberry trees are plants with a special tradition. This concerns above all the white-fruited mulberry trees, Morus alba. The leaves of Morus alba have been used as fodder for silkworms for thousands of years and are therefore an important raw material for silk production. If you want to plant a mulberry tree yourself, you don't need an avenue or silkworm production. All you need is a beautiful mulberry tree from the Lubera® garden shop.

The zigzag mulberry tree

In the urban environment, with plots of land becoming smaller, the idea of planting a mulberry tree seems absurd at first. Small-growing trees are the order of the day. However, just as this is a good idea, it is no reason to do without mulberry trees. Our 'Zickzack' variety is a small mulberry tree, which reaches its maximum height at 3 metres. If even these 3 metres are too high, the zigzag mulberry can be made smaller by pruning. The growth is indeed zigzag-shaped and therefore particularly distinctive. The self-pollinating mulberry tree produces sweet and juicy fruits that are ripe in August. However, one must hurry with the harvest, as mulberries are also very popular with birds.

The hanging mulberry tree Morus alba pendula

But mulberries are not only bred as zigzag varieties but also in the beautiful weeping or hanging form. The white mulberry tree Morus alba pendula also remains small due to its downward growing crown. The total height is between 1.50 and 2 metres. This makes Morus alba pendula an ideal tree for the front garden. The fruits appear in the summer after an inconspicuous flowering, but despite the 'Alba' affiliation, they turn dark blue to black when fully ripe. Morus alba is not quite as frost-resistant as our other mulberry varieties and should therefore be protected. Due to the good pruning ability of the mulberry trees, dead branches can be cut off without any problems.

Mulberry Illinois

If you want to harvest and enjoy especially large mulberries, you cannot miss our largest mulberry tree of the variety 'Illinois'. This variety is hardy without problems and starts to bear fruit at a young age. The size can be limited to three metres by regular pruning, but unrestrained mulberry trees can also grow to five metres and take up space in the garden. The fruits are huge and grow up to 4 cm in size. The harvest time for the mulberry variety 'Illinois' is July to September, so that you can enjoy delicious mulberries all summer long.
