Below is a side by side comparison of the Pakistan Mulberry and the White Persian Mulberry through my particular eyes and palate.

  1. The Pakistan mulberries a long sweet and juicy, very delicious. The persian mulberries ‘shah toot’ are shorter, fat, and tart before ripe, and really pack a lot of flavor, juice, and sweet and a little tart when ripe. The pakistan ones are very good even before fully ripe, while the persian mulberries are amazingly good when ripe.
