The black mulberry tree is among the most beautiful. It grows to 30 feet and has a symmetrical spreading habit and very large heart shaped leaves. Each late summer and early fall, it produces loads of delicious fruit that is black when it is ripe.
The tree is hardy in USDA Zones 8-10. Black Mulberry trees thrive in California, western Oregon and Western Washington and throughout the south, wherever temperatures don't fall below 10 degrees F.
