Mulberry Seeds - Black Mulberry

Black Mulberry (Morus nigra) Zones 5-9.

This old world fruit is growing in popularity here in Canada, and for good reason! Sweet, oblong berries hang abundantly from these trees.

The trees themselves grow to 30 feet and can live for hundreds of years, bearing fruit all the while.

 ** Attention folks in Ontario: Did you know that Southern Ontario is the only region where the native Red Mulberry is found? It is an endangered tree species. Other types of mulberry can cross with Red Mulberry, thereby hybridizing the offspring and contributing to its disappearance. Please consider this.

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak Seeds 24 hrs. Follow 90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Start Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
