Common Name:  Native Mulberry

Best Position:  They prefer warm climates, full sun and soils with good drainage. This rainforest species does not enjoy dry conditions, but can recover from droughts with heavy pruning. As a warm region plant, it won't respond well to frost either, so gardeners in colder areas should consider keeping their trees in a hothouse or inside the home.

Plant Description:  The fruits of the Native Mulberry are small and white, almost translucent in appearance. Like strawberries, they bear their seeds on the outside. They are soft and juicy, with a sweet and delicate flavour, though like conventional mulberries, can vary in taste and texture. The leaves, roots and sap have recorded usage in traditional medicine, while the bark was used for textiles and cordage. Tucker Bush Safety: Whether using our commercially grown Tucker Bush plants, or sourcing your own fruit & plant material from the wild, caution should be exercised. Fruit and any edible plant material may require specific preparation to be safely eaten. Please read our plant labels and also consult the www.tuckerbush.com.au website for specific plant information.

Best Uses:  Reaching heights of 3-8m even in a home garden. In fact, if a native edible hedge is what you are after, look no further.
