The Mulberries

Latin Name : Morus alba

The Mulberry Tree is a medium sized, fairly rugged looking tree, and it may be something that you haven’t come across. Its leaves are famously known for being the food upon which the Silkworm feeds, and its almost ‘Logan Berry-like’ fruit smacks of ‘Days Gone By’…

… as well it might, it’s been here since the end of the 16th Century.

The heart-shaped leaf

A word of warning however. If you decide to plant one, be sure to pick the fruit before it falls, because it stains paving like you wouldn’t believe.
