Okay I have one thing to say about mulberry's- and I know it's irrelevant to the thread, but I'm going to say it anyway.

We used to live in Maryland, and the neighborhood we lived in had mulberry trees ALL OVER THE PLACE. We were newly married, fairly poor, but I managed to scrape up some $$ for a really nice white dress shirt for work (early to mid 90's). I bought a really thick nice white button down collar Polo cotton dress shirt.

I washed it, starched and ironed it to PERFECTION. On a beautiful summer day I'm driving to work with the window down, left arm resting out the window. I come to a stop sign a bird CRAPPED mulberry crap right onto my shirt.

RUINED. We could never get the stain out.

I hate mulberrys, lol.

I don’t wear white shirt anyway, but your story made me LOL. Cheap t-shirts bought from Hawaii, 6 for $20.

My old neighborhood had both regular and dwarf mulberries. The dwarf mulberries were definitely less "wild" - the branches grew down instead of up, and they didn't grow all over the place. However, they never produced much. If you're planting the mulberry for the fruit, you may get a much smaller harvest with these.

I love, love, love regular mulberries, though of course you don't want them anywhere near anything you don't want covered in ripe purple berries. I've never owned one though, so no idea if you can prune it so the branches stay low (and you can pick off the berries before they go splat).

Mulberry trees are at least somewhat common in Indianapolis and in central Indiana. I think they perform best in rich fertile soils with fair drainage.

I don't get the hate. They produce tasty fruit and they grow large and fast enough to provide shade. Who wouldn't want that? Decent shade and privacy from neighbours, and delightful fruit. Sure, they can be messy and would conjure stains on the ground, but it's worth it. Oh and they're also hard to kill. I transplanted a 2 metre+ tall, 2+ year old mulberry tree (that was so close to a fence) to another location in my yard, and the damn bugger survived, despite suffering transplantation shock for a month. It's a very forgiving plant and, on top of all that, it is fast growing and it treats you with delicious fruit. So what's to hate?

Thank you for sharing your passion about mulberry, Ethereal.

I am beginning to think the dwarf variety is not the way to go. I saw the video from Logee's showing the exact dwarf-everbearing-mulberry in a pot, but the fruits are small. So I am thinking getting a regular size mulberry but grow it in a pot, this way i limit its size and root spread but still get the larger size friuts.

What do you think?
