VERY RARE TICE Black Mulberry – SUPER HUGE FRUIT – SUPER FLAVORFUL. 6 Fresh Easy-Grow Cuttings. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. Beautiful tree with gorgeous large leaves that gets about 20-25 feet high. The black fruit is about 3 inches long and about an inch wide. They are BIG and incredibly flavorful. The tree will produce LOADS of flavorful and sweet black fruit. VERY hard to find. Easily confused with Shangri-La (a variety that originated in Naples, FL) * this is the variety that Exalibur Nursery claims is the best tasting of all the varieties that they have tried. Almost impossible to find. My tree came from a cutting from a prominent member of the Broward Tropical Fruit Society. My opinion is that it is by far the most flavorful of the five varieties that I own. It is similar to my Shangri-La but produces more fruit with a more pronounced flavor. The size is about the same. It is sweet, but not the super-sugar-honey sweetness of the white Shahtoot. It is however more sweet and far more juicy than my Pakistan though — which is a longer fruit but not as wide. You will receive 6 FRESH cuttings from the mother tree. Luckily, mulberry is one of the easier fruit trees to root from cuttings. It’s an easy process — I just stick the cuttings into dirt after dipping the ends in rooting hormone. Keep them watered and shaded. You’ll start seeing leaves in no time. It will take about a month and a half to fully root out though. Using this method, I usually get 3 trees from 6 cuttings here in humid Florida. Some people recommend placing a bag over the top of the cutting to keep in moisture, but that isn’t necessary in our 95% Florida humidity luckily. I cut and ship the same day, so you can be sure you’ll get the freshest cuttings available. * I wrap each in a moist towel with some diluted anti-fungal agent. I then wrap in cellophane. I then wrap in aluminum foil. I then wrap in a plastic bag. Cuttings arrive fresh and ready to go. It takes a lot of time but you’ll end up with much better cuttings. * Please google for the best method to root cuttings for your area. Anyway, you’ll be fine, but I can’t guarantee your success as I’m not knowledgable of every climate and temp that these cuttings may be grown in nor your experience level as a gardener. All sales final. ** I rooted out two cuttings out of six when I first got my tree. Don’t expect all the cuttings to make it with this variety — but I just put rooting hormone on it and stuck it in the dirt. Some of you are more adept I suppose. It’s worth it as it’s an incredible impossible to find tree that gets loaded with huge luscious sweet flavorful fruit If you want a rooted tree, Exalibur (fantastic tropical nursery) in Fort Lauderdale does carry them, but they are very expensive — nearly $69 for a small 1 gallon tree plus shipping. ** Regarding cuttings — they have to be done right to maximize your chances for a healthy tree. Are the end points at a node? Does the cutting have adequate nodes? Is it a fresh cutting (mine are cut, packaged then immediately shipped)? Is it the right stage of growth — neither too old or too young? Anyway, I’ll make sure that you receive the best cutting available. I’ve been doing this a long time even though I’m just a hobbyist (nearly 180 fruit trees in my garden/orchard.) Received this message from a recent buyer: *****Perfect… Your Cuttings Shawn Were Beautiful… Some I’ve Received Have Been Pretty Poor… When Do Sense You Have New Cutting Ready To Sell… ***** NOTE: DO NOT USE CUPS FOR ROOTING. I use a 1 gallon container with soil. These need to have constant moisture but not soggy (you’ll get root rot if too wet.) Cups just don’t do it. DO NOT TOUCH THESE CUTTINGS FOR 4-5 WEEKS AFTER POTTING THEM. You will destroy the new roots otherwise. Just a tip, but you should have a beautiful tree soon if you are patient. If you are interested in more cuttings. I also have: Shangri-LaKing White ShahtootPakistan (not selling anymore since it’s so hard to root.)Ticeand Australian Green (not selling anymore because I finally got fruit and don’t like it as much as the shahtoot.)
