Mulberry trees are among the easiest trees to grow. They produce an abundance of fruit each year and usually start within a year or two. Prune them like other fruit trees to keep them down in size for ease of picking. No spraying and no pollinizer is required so only one tree is needed to produce fruit. We use Russian mulberry as the rootstock to maintain hardiness.

Our white mulberry seedlings, are used as a rootstock for our grafted cultivars. They are hardier than the native red mulberry originating in Russia. Though they are called "white" mulberry, the fruit can be dark or white. They are dioecious, that is they produce male and female flowers on separate plants. To produce viable seeds, a male tree is needed. Female trees will still produce fruit without a male.
