Morus alba x rubra 'Illinois Everbearing'

This grafted tree is hardy to -30F, which makes it one of the most widely adapted of all mulberries. It sometimes starts producing the first year after planting! It becomes a large shade tree very quickly, often growing 3'-5' per year in favorable conditions.

It bears an abundance of sweet, dark, highly-flavored fruit, 1-1/2 inches long x 1/2 inch wide that look like elongated blackberries, and have a delicious and distinctive sweet taste. The berries start to ripen a little later than some other cultivars, and ripen continuously throughout July, August, and into September, hence the 'Everbearing' name.

USDA Zone: 4-9

Grow Height: 30'

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: July-September

Ask a Question
  • What is the shipped height?

    4 to 5 feet tall at shipping

  • When is it too late to plant a Mulberry tree? - Is mid June too late for norther Arkansas?

    Waiting until fall is the better option for sure.

  • What does bare root mean

    It means the tree is not potted, but shipped with it's roots packed in moist sawdust or paper. Overall it's better for the tree and cheaper to ship that way, so win-win.

  • Can this mulberry be pruned to keep it a workable height under 30 ft?

    Absolutely. It takes annual pruning, but they do very well kept low. Hence the mulberry bush that the monkey chased the weasel around.

mulberry tree looks pitifull

We planted our mulberry tree a day after we got it in May. As of the beginning of July it has a few leaves in the bottom 3" and that's all. I have gotten dozens of bushes and trees on line and this isn't what I expected.

Happy with order

I got my 3 tall mulberry trees well-rooted, they were packaged great. They seem happy as they are budding out now. I will order again from Raintree for sure!

I’ve grown this tree at my last home and absolutely loved the constant fruit. My grandkids look forward to each summer and eating them. I could not be happier.

healthy tree arrival

tree arrived healthy and with some small leaf buds - no branches though it is an unbranched whip.
