Pakistan Mulberry

Morus macroura

a.k.a. Shatoot

Long-fruited mulberry relative with fruits several inches long. Flavor is quite good and on par with the black mulberry.

Seed Availability

Seeds are now available at our seed store.

Description

Medium sized deciduous tree usually only to 20-30ft, but can reach 70ft. Although they appear so, fruits are not true berries but an aggregate. Trees are known to be very long lived and can bear fruit for several hundred years.

Hardiness

Trees are hardy to about 18-25F (it varies tree to tree).

Growing Environment

Trees are fairly adaptable, but grow well in deep, moist soils. Fertilization is generally unnecessary. Grow in full sun. Mildly drought tolerant, but water should be provided during long dry spells. The Himalayan Mulberry is fairly similar in growth habits and climatic requirements to the black mulberry.

Propagation

Usually by seed, which can take several years to bear. Seeds will benefit from a few weeks to 2-3 months of cold stratification. Seeds can germinate within a few weeks to several months.

Uses

Fruits are eaten fresh or can be used just like any berry.

Native Range

Native to the Himalayan mountains in China.
