The Red Mulberry Tree grows well in USDA Hardiness Zones 4-8. It typically thrives in Full to Partial Sun and has a 12-24 Inches growth rate per year. Once full grown they can reach a height of 40-70 Feet and 40-50 Feet in spread. The Red Mulberry does best in Well-Drained Sandy, loamy, or clay soil. The berries produced by the mulberry trees are edible when ripe and are used to make desserts, wine, tea, and supplements. Mulberry trees are self-fertile, so you only need one to yield a crop. In general, it can take up to two to three years for everbearing mulberry trees to fruit. The wood of red mulberries can be used to smoke meat and Cherokee tribes weaved fine fabric using the soft inner wood fibers. In fall expect to see the leaves transition to a beautiful hue of Yellow. Be ready to see a variety of wildlife drawn to the Red Mulberry as they can attract Birds and small mammals. Once in bloom the flowers will be Yellow, green in color.
