Mulberries
   

Mulberries were brought to Northern Europe in Roman times. They are easy to grow and have the potential to produce big crops in Ireland. Modern mulberry varieties generally begin cropping at a young age, often after only 3 or 4 years. The trees are very long lived. Trees should be spaced at 6-10 meters for best results.

In appearance mulberries resemble a swollen loganberry, becoming sweet, succulent and full of juice. Unlike many other fruits, mulberries ripen over an extended period of time and have a long picking season.

The three main species are Morus alba, Morus rubra and Morus nigra.
