The Mulberry Fruit at Neighborhood – Food 41

The ripen Mulberry’s fruit is almost the same color with Blackberry, but they are different in shape in which Mulberry is longer than Blackberry.



Image 1- Fruits of Mulberry tree

We have Blackberry plants as a bush which climbs our fences. We don’t have Mulberry tree.

We know one of our neighbors has a Mulberry tree. The tree has scientific name, Morus sp.

When the tree produces fruit, joggers and passerby’s to sneak a snack. The owner is quite welcome to everyone to tasted the fruit.

Sure, I tried one. I think the fruit sweetness is fairly, and quite similar dried figs. The dark Mulberry almost similar taste in some degree to blackberry.

We tried to find fresh Mulberry fruit in many grocery stores, but no ones sell the fresh Mulberry. Walmart just sell powder and jam.

After searching through internet, we find one of the reasons as reported by Janet Nguyen (2022: Why aren’t mulberries sold at grocery stores?) that “the fruit is difficult to harvest and has a refrigerated shelf life of two to four days.”

  3. My supermarket sells them in small boxes at the height of the season... Then there are frozen ones...
    It is a powerfully anti-oxidant food, but so are the blueberries and Gogis and are cheaper amd safer... 🍑🍒🍓🫐

  7. Hello dear!
    I don't think there are mulberries in my area, there are blackberries and there are quite a lot of them, for example in the forests :)

  8. Por estos lares, no hay señales de estos frutos, al parecer exóticos. Supongo que son estacionarios y no de climas tropicales. Un abrazo. Carlos
