General Information

A fully ripened mulberry is dark purple to black, edible, and sweet with a good flavor.

Unripe fruit and green parts of the plant have a white sap that is intoxicating and mildly hallucinogenic.

The ripe fruit is edible and is widely used in pies, tarts, wines and cordials.

The mature plant contains significant amounts of resveratrol, particularly in stem bark.

The fruit and leaves are sold in various forms as nutritional supplements.

Mulberry leaves, particularly those of the white mulberry, are ecologically important as the sole food source of the silkworm.

The tree branches pruned during the fall season (after the leaves have fallen) are cut and used to make very durable baskets.

the fruit is believed to have medicinal properties. The leaves are eaten for diabetes.
