Black English Mulberry

This is a truly amazing tree. The Black English mulberry is quite different to its more warmer cousins (eg Hicks fancy and White mulberry) in that it tolerates the cool climates really well. A tree that eventually grows 4-5m, slowly over 60-80 years. Expect heavy crops of delicious, juicy, tasty purple-black berries.... And fruit that ripen in a staggered way over 4-5 weeks.  Birds dont tend to get the fruit as easily as other berries. A vigorous tree, growing to around 4m tall preferring good soil with plenty of organic matter and mulch. Self fertile. Quite hard to propagate, hence the high price but well worth it.
