VERY RARE Shahtoot King White Mulberry – SUPER HUGE FRUIT – SUPER SWEET . 6 Fresh Easy-Grow Cuttings. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. Beautiful tree with gorgeous large leaves that gets about 20 feet high. The white fruit is about 4-5 inches long and incredibly sweet. The tree will produce LOADS of flavorful and sweet white fruit. VERY hard to find. One of my top two favorite varieties next to Tice (incredible variety but a bit harder to root.) HUGE berries with tons of sweetness and a honey flavor. Very good. ** pruning the tree seems to induce new fruit growth. ** bonus: the fruit doesn’t make a mess on your driveway like the darker varieties and being white, doesn’t seem to be attacked by birds either.** it’s been my experience in buggy Florida, that the tree doesn’t attract pests; at least, not in the last four years I’ve had it. ** beautiful shade tree. I have my tree located in the front of the garden, and I always get comments on how nice it looks and how loaded with fruit it gets. You will receive 6 FRESH cuttings from the mother tree. Luckily, mulberry is one of the easier fruit trees to root from cuttings (with the exception of Pakistan which is a bit hard to root.) 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 3-4 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. Don’t go crazy with the humidity and a plastic bag or you’ll get mold. Please google for the best method to root cuttings for your area. 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. ** 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) and not a commercial seller. 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. * *** SOME TIPS FOR SUCCESS: 1. PLEASE do not root in cups. Use a 1 gallon container if possible. Cups don’t hold enough moisture nor allow sufficient root development although several people have said they have done this with my cuttings successfully (must be using a misting tray.)2. You need to be PATIENT. It can take 3-4-5 weeks to successfully root. It won’t happen in four days. 3. Please do not transplant the cuttings immediately after they have rooted. You will damage the roots. Leave them be for 3-4-5 weeks and you will have a very strong and very well rooted tree. 4. Root in partial shade. NO DIRECT SUNLIGHT until the plant is fully rooted. 4. After planting in the ground, make sure you prune to select a strong central leader; otherwise you will have a multi-trunk tree. Not necessarily a bad thing for fruit production, but not quite as pretty in my opinion when it gets large.
