What is a mulberry? Mulberry trees are high-harvest, low-maintenance fruit-bearing species. Once established, they hardly require any care beyond pruning and occasional watering. There are various varieties of mulberry trees. However, the three most commonly grown mulberry trees include black mulberry (Morus nigra), red mulberry (Morus rubra), and white mulberry (Morus alba).
Mulberry trees are deciduous and attain different heights based on their variety. White mulberry trees are the tallest, reaching up to 80 feet in height. Red mulberry reaches 70 feet. The black mulberry tree, which is the smallest of these three species, reaches only 30 feet in height.
Mulberries are fast-growing trees, especially when young. The leaves are arranged alternately on the branches. They are often lobed or saw-toothed on the margins. The flowers are white and grow in clusters called inflorescences. Each fruit is a cluster of drupelets, which means that each berry is actually made up of individual juice-filled drupes or segments with a seed inside each one. When combined together, the drupes make up a single berry.
