White Mulberry Tree – Persian
As a large deciduous tree, the mulberry can provide good shade. However, they can also be pruned to desired height. Due to its large root system, it is best planted away from structures and paving without root barriers. White Mulberry trees are generally very resilient, grow fairly fast, and do well in California climate. Harvest takes place from late spring to summer.
Trees can be grown as close as 10 feet apart, when trimmed to grow narrow. However, to have a nice wide canopy, plant trees 15-20 feet apart. Trees can grow quickly in full sun when provided with regular water. Deep water during the Spring and Summer growing season. Fertilize with organic fruit tree foods for healthy growth and a plentiful harvest.
