Selected here at Whispering Trees, Black Lady has been selected for its close-jointed compact habit, fast-track fruiting, and outstandingly beautiful lobed foliage. When grown in a 24" container, Black Lady has truly thieved and regularly reaches fruiting age in just 5 years. That's significantly less than other Black Mulberries. It is precocious, heavy yielding and full of distinctive Mulberry flavour. The fruits are just great for simmering and serving with vanilla ice cream, they also make a jam packed with taste, can be made into pies and also freeze very well. The large, handsome and deeply lobed foliage turns deep ochre yellow in Autumn meaning that our Black Lady Mulberry is an ornamental delight too and will keep you more than satisfied until the first delectable fruits come along. Black Lady is a very distinct new variety of Black Mulberry that we highly recommend. Supplied at 90-120cm's approx.
