Mulberry : KOKUSO grafted 100-180cm ( 3-6')


65 in stock

This Korean variety is believed to be a Morus nigra subspecies. It is reportedly every bit as hardy as Illinois Everbearing with similar fruit size. It ripens over 2 to 3 weeks, starting slightly earlier than the Illinois. Large high quality, purple-black fruit is sweet and mild flavoured with sufficient firmness for producing and handling. Unlike most mulberries, Kokuso does not readily drop it's ripe berries. Although the tree grows quite rapidly, it remains relatively compact.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
