Depending on where in the world you live, you may have white, red, black, Texas, Chinese or African mulberries!
Mulberries actually grow on trees and not bushes as the nursery rhyme line “here we go round the mulberry bush” purports.
Once they start bearing fruit, trees will bear mulberries annually from July through September.
If you are the one doing the harvesting, be sure to wear gloves as they do stain.
They are also a rather fragile fruit in the sense that they do not continue to ripen once picked, so shipping is really not an option.
Additionally, they have such a short growing season and are often picked by hand, they are rarely found in supermarkets but rather farmer markets (if you’re lucky).
When you find some, you will want some fresh mulberries recipes to pull out like the 21 on this list.
Dried mulberries are readily shipped out, though, so if you want to give them a try, here’s our affiliate link.
