General Plant Information
White Mulberry Tree – Persian
As a large deciduous tree, the mulberry can provide good shade. However, they can be pruned to a desired height and is best planted away from structures and paving without root barriers due to its large root system. White Mulberry trees are generally very resilient, grow fairly fast, and do well in California climate. Harvest takes place from late Spring to Summer.
White Mulberry 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.

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.
