15 Black Mulberry, Morus nigra, Tree Seeds Hardy, Adaptable, Edible Fruit, Attracts Birds, Wildlife Food, Shade Tree, Drought, Salt and Wind Tolerant By Seeds and Things
The Black Mulberry is an ornamental as well as a fruit bearing tree. It has a crooked, wide-spreading habit; dark red, purple, or black fruit, at 1", the largest of the genus. The Black Mulberry is a medium sized deciduous tree usually only to 20 to 30 feet, but can reach 70 feet. Trees are known to be very long lived and can bear fruit for several hundred years. Mulberry trees are either dioecious or monoecious, and sometimes will change from one sex to another. The flowers are held on short, green, pendulous, nondescript catkins that appear in the axils of the current season's growth and on spurs on older wood. They are wind pollinated and some cultivars will set fruit without any pollination. Cross-pollination is not necessary. Mulberries prefer deep, rich soils, but they will tolerate thin gravelly soil, rocky slopes, dry sites and other difficult areas, such as wet or alkaline soils. For this reason, they can be used for erosion control. They produce reliably in frost pockets and exposed areas. Mulberries need full sun, but otherwise, are one of the least "fussy" of the fruit trees. Although they appear so, fruits are not true berries but an aggregate. The berry-like fruit have a unique tart-sweet taste. The black mulberry is generally considered the best tasting of the various mulberry species. The berries can be eaten out of hand or used in any way that other berries are used, such as in pies, tarts, puddings or sweetened and pureed as a sauce. Slightly unripe fruits are best for making pies and tarts. Mulberries blend well with other fruits, especially pears and apples. They can also be made into wine and make an excellent dried fruit, especially the black varieties. Birds are also attracted to the fruits in large numbers; in fact, some people plant mulberries near their cherry trees, since the birds are reputed to enjoy the mulberries even more.

This photo came out surprisingly well considering that the afternoon was rather breezy. I used the AV program and I'm pleased with the results, all things considered. Sometimes I use my pictures as a bit of a photodiary, this is one of the times :-). *********************************************************************************************************************************** It's been kind of hectic this last week since Mom had her hip-replacement surgery. She's been transfered to a rehab center where she'll receive therapy everyday. She's doing really well, I'm so impressed with her and bursting with happiness and pride. I've been really busy getting ready for a weekend trip to see some friends. Because I had lost some weight last year I had donated a bunch of clothes that no longer fit. As I planned for the trip, I realized that I needed to make some additions to my wardrobe, so I had to get in some shopping as well. Not my favorite thing, really. But I found enough to get by and will have to address my remaining wardrobe needs at a later date. Today I ordered an arrangement from Edible Arrangements, the folks at the location in Fayetteville, Ga were so friendly that I know I'll be doing more business with them in the future. I think that is such a great business idea to deliver bouquets of fruit instead of the usual cake and flowers. So on top of shopping, I've tried to put together a little something for my Dad's 75th birthday. I had wanted to make a really big deal out of it, but that will have to wait until Mom is home and is comfortable enough to go out in public. I had hoped to get up to Sandy Springs to the new Penzey's store. My friend and her husband are also on sodium restricted diets and I thought a sampler of a dozen or so spice blends would be a thoughtful gift. Now I'm not sure I get up there and back as it is about 80 miles round trip and would take close to three hours to complete. SIGH. Busy, busy, busy!
DC's "early" Birthday Bouquet of Fruits
DC's sister had one of those birthday bouquet of fruits delivered to her office yesterday so of course I had to take a picture of her with in. This is from "Edible Arrangements" . . . . . . (BTW. . . DC's birthday is not until next Friday, March 27th but I guess her sister wanted to make sure she didn't forget it.)

Fruit trees, shrubs, and vines are true two-for-one plants. Many varieties are strikingly beautiful — well suited to doing double duty as delicious sources of sweet, organic fruit and as ornamental additions to the home landscape. Backyard fruit plants also tie in perfectly with the growing locavore movement. It's difficult to find food that's more local than one's own backyard!
"Luscious landscaping," as author Lee Reich calls it, takes fruit-bearing plants off the commercial farm and replants the prettiest and tastiest specimens in suburban and rural yards. Spring blossoms, summer and fall fruit, and the year-round presence of the plants themselves bring a special magic to the home landscape. Pillowy pink blossoms on peach branches or the bright orange fruit of persimmon trees perk up their surroundings with color and drama.
Beautiful plants, yes, but these landscaping additions also provide sweet, nutritious fruit. Homegrown, organic varieties bear almost no resemblance to commercially produced fruits,which are bred and selected to withstand shipping and refrigerated storage conditions. It's hard to believe that Alpine strawberries and those grown in California and shipped across the country are even related!
Fruitscaping is a complete, no-nonsense guide to growing temperate-zone fruit, with information on everything from planting and pruning to pest control and harvesting. Readers will find all the basics of landscaping with fruit — site analysis, climate assessment, understanding soil and sun, plant selection, and optimizing growing conditions. An encyclopedia of 38 plants includes information for each entry on hardiness, size, potential pests, special care and pruning, harvesting, and visual appeal.
