mulberries

At one time, the Mulberry was one of the most treasured fruit trees on the homestead. Planted around outbuildings and livestock pens, they were valued as beautiful, useful and lush shade trees. Mulberries needed no care, and reliably produced bucketfuls of delicious fruit. When the berries were harvested in spring, much time was spent preserving and storing the bounty. Opening a jar of mulberry jam or delicious dried mulberry raisins in the depths of winter was a true pleasure. Even spicy wines were made from the delicious and versatile Mulberry. Mulberries prefer well-drained soils and part to full sun.
