Thanks Elaine, I learnt this when I was young, when swinging in the mulberry trees on the way to school. We were fortunate to have loquat fruit, mangoes hanging over the fences on our long walk to school.

Or if you are fortunate enough to be given black Mulberries but don't have access to green ones: use the stalk as a handle, it saves some staining. Or rub stains with Lemon juice. Both are useful but inferior to using the green fruit.

Does everyone know about the way to remove mulberry stains from black mulberries on your fingers etc.   Just rub them with a green mulberry. It usually does the trick.

This is the first year my Dwf Pink Shatoot has really cropped well. Perhaps 4yrs old.

There's one lovely dessert in a hand.

Wow they are big!

Very nice.  I had ONE off my baby tree that managed to survive severe neglect and overcrowding from rosella plants last year.  Here's hoping that the tree grows a bit this season and next I'll have some to show as well.

I eat mine by torchlight at night time lol. Very sweet and always a handful ripened since the previous day.
