Several people been asking how one particular mulberry tree & fruit compares to another mulberry.
While I can’t compare all of them, I can provide some first hand insight on two of my favorite mulberries.
Below is a side by side comparison of the Pakistan Mulberry and the White Persian Mulberry through my particular eyes and palate.
Side by side comparison:
Tree: Pakistan Mulberry White Persian Mulberry
Tree growth: Vigorous Slow
Leaf size: Large Medium
Amt of fruit: Lots 1/2 the amt of fruit on the tree
Fruit Size/Shape: Long fruit Short-stout fruit.
Ripe fruit color: Purple/maroon and dusky Dark purple- black and shinny
When ripe: March->May April->June
Fruit taste: Sweet and fruity Sweet and bright-somewhat acid.
Fruit juiciness: On the dry side Juicy and messy
- The care is basically the same for both trees (For more info, see my earlier post for the care of the Pakistan Mulberry).
