Red Mulberry – A Nutrition Powerhouse

Why Red Mulberry (Morus Rubra)?

The red mulberry, also known scientifically as Morus rubra, is a mulberry indigenous to the eastern and central regions of North America. It is small to a medium-sized deciduous tree. The flowers are not very noticeable since they are tiny, yellowish-green, or reddish-green, and they bloom simultaneously as the leaves do. In the spring and early summer, birds show a strong interest in the berries; in Arkansas alone, up to 31 species of birds have been seen visiting fruiting trees.

The red mulberry is a marvel in and of itself due to its diverse array of nutrients, applications, and advantages. Not only can you eat and benefit from the berries, but it also has anti-cancer properties.

Despite this, mulberries are nutritional powerhouses because they contain abundant essential nutrients such as vitamin C, K, iron, and anthocyanin, which are especially good for the blood.

When its bark is damaged, it secretes a substance similar to latex, which prevents the tree from being overrun by predators and enables any wounded tissue to recover and close itself swiftly.

The berries can be eaten off the bush or used in preserves, jams, and jellies. They can also be used as a baking ingredient to liven up a bread, muffin, or cake.

Pollination: The flowers are cross-pollinated by the wind.

    Red Mulberry Fresh and Healthy Stock

    Posted by Jim Shenfish on 03/03/23

    I ordered four mulberry trees, a dogwood , four Japanese maples and a persimmon, but I was blown away with the quality of the mulberry bare root trees. They look very fresh with white roots and they look like they were just dug up. I let the trees soak in water for 24 hours and planted them 3 weeks later I already have 1 inch growth on all the mulberries. Three of them have the standard mitten leaf pattern and one of them has the three lob pattern. I’m still waiting on the Japanese maples to ship. Very happy with purchase so far.

    Red Mulberry

    Posted by Unknown on 06/03/21

    I’ve received my plant about a month ago, it did not leaf out yet. I’m patiently waiting to see if it will make it or not. I scratched the bark and it is going into brown mode. Hopefully, I’ll see some leaves sometime soon and hope it survives, all my other plants from this store are doing great!
