As a unique edible landscaping addition, it is prized for its gnarled and twisted branches. In the winter time, in particular, the wavy, contorted limbs are rather eye-catching. Like all mulberry trees, it grows quite quickly for the first few years, but matures at only 2.5-3.5m (8-12'). Container growing is a possibility. And yes, it does also produce tasty, jet-black mulberries.
