Ask a Question
  • what are the main differences between the oscar and the illinois ever bearing mulberry? trying to decide on which one would be best. We live in PA and have a big wide open space in which to plant one tree which we intend to let grow on it's own to full size and hopefully get a lot of berries from it in a few years.

    They main differernce is in fruit ripening. Oscar ripens most of it's crop at the same time, while Illinois Everbearing ripens it's crop unevenly over a longer period.

Took 10 years but yield is now incredible!

Purchased from Raintree about 10 years ago. After about 5 years it started producing a small fruit crop, always less than a gallon. In 2023 the tree went nuts and produced about 20 gallons of fruit. I gave up when I ran out of freezer space. I live in Minnesota which may account for the slow growth rate. The early berries are small (0.75 inch long by about 0.35 inches diameter but the later berries are up to 1.25 inch long by 0.5 inches diameter. Taste is superb, especially the later berries. Picked approximately a quart a day for two months. I let berries drop onto netting. More red berries early (picture), dense black berries later.

Way too soon to ask for a review on a bareroot tree just purchased two weeks ago that looked like a stick. Check back in 90 days!
