Weeping Mulberry Tree – Teas Weeping Fruiting Mulberry
The Weeping Mulberry is a very beautiful tree with unique branches that grow down towards the ground. The tree produces sweet, juicy and tasty berries in the Summer that are small and red when ripe. Keep the tree small and use as a focal point or place two or more symmetrically to create a gateway. Weeping Mulberries are great for containers or planters. The fruit is small and dark red to black when ripe. It produces many juicy mulberries with a nice sweet flavor. These trees are dormant in the Winter, and should be pruned to keep branches from touching the floor. This helps promote a thicker canopy that will produce more fruit.

General Plant Information
Weeping Mulberry Tree Information and Care
The Weeping Mulberry is a woody deciduous fruit tree. Some cities have streets lined with Weeping Mulberry trees to create a striking effect. Plant in the full sun and in well draining soil. Weeping Mulberries are often kept small, about 6- 8 feet tall and wide. They can grow as large as 10-15 feet wide over decades if not trimmed. Deeply water weekly during the Spring. Increase the frequency to twice per week in the Summer. Reduce the frequency back to weekly in the Fall, and discontinue watering in the Winter. Provide fruit tree fertilizer seasonly, except in the Fall. Prune branches near or touching the ground to promote thicker growth.
Additional InformationPlant Type: Deciduous
Chill Hours: Less 100 hours below 45°F
Pollination: Self-Fruitful / Self Pollinating
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-10
Soil and Planting: Plant in soil that drains well. Dig a hole that is as deep as the tree’s roots and at least twice as wide.
Place the tree in the hole and backfill around the plant’s roots with a mixture of the native soil and high-quality planting mix that has washed sand and organic fertilizer.
Create a basin around the roots drip zone so that water collects. Water deeply until the roots and nearby soil is saturated and reaches field capacity.
Limited Guarantee and Returns
The two factors that determine if a deciduous fruit trees will grow well and produce fruit in a certain area are the Chill Hour Requirement and the Cold Hardiness. “Chill hours” are the amount of cold a deciduous fruit tree need to produce fruit. This is measured in the number of hours below 45 degrees Fahrenheit a plant must experience during its winter dormancy. Paradise Nursery only grows Low Chill fruit trees that meet the chill requirements of all areas of the United States.
The second factor is Cold Hardiness. Cold Hardiness refers to the minimum temperature a plant can tolerate. The USDA’s Cold Hardiness Zones indicate the average minimum winter temperatures of areas. Based on the shipping zipcode, our website will only allow you to add plants to your cart that grow within your USDA Hardiness Zone, and tolerate your climate.
Pollination & Propagation
(Grafting/Cutting) Most of Paradise Nursery’s edible plants are self-fruitful. Self-pollinating trees do not require an additional tree to produce fruit. For your convenience, we have indicated which trees require a pollinator, and their associated pollinators. Only the sweet cherries, avocados, and some plums require a pollinator. All of our other propagated edible plants do not require a pollinator. All of our edible plants are either grown from cuttings, budded, or grafted. This way, we can ensure that our plants are high quality and fruit immediately. Plants will generally begin fruiting within a year of planting.
