Silk Hope Mulberry (Morus) [SPRING]

Silk Hope Mulberry (Morus) [SPRING]

Morus alba x rubra

Since mulberry leaves are the sole food source of the silkworm, some American trees date to the early 1800's, when North Carolina was part of a thriving silk industry which was soon eclipsed by foreign competition. Silk Hope, discovered by A. J. Bullard, boasts this historic distinction and thrives better than most in the South. It bears 1-½ inch long, sweet, black fruit that ripens for two months in early summer.
