If you got it from Daley's, it's probably grafted (like mine) but worth a go.
Not obvious whether mine are grafted either. It's a deciduous tree and the secateurs are your friend.
I'm not sure if my own tree isn't grafted. Could be a problem, but worth a go.
Thanks Lissa you are a gem !!!!
Shhh but I have promised Anne Gibson some cuttings next weekend - I will bring extra. It's not the right time to be trimming the tree while it's fruiting but I don't get to see Anne all that often so we will take the opportunity.
thanks Lissa and Jan - pity its the wrong time of year for pruning! will have to look out next year and try to get some cuttings going... sound so delicious ! the birds seem to have kept away from our mulberries this year so much that the local kids come and raid the trees every couple of days ( with permission of course) ! probably wasnt a good idea to grow 7 black trees a couple of white and a red one !!! 1 of each seems to be enough! but when Bunnings was selling them out at $2 a pot last year and we had nothing in the ground I couldnt resist them ! Mind you Col has several ( like 20 ) cuttings growing too - white dwarf white and black. He had 80 fig cuttings shoot too - 4 different types but thankfully he has given lots of them away !
Yep, just another variety of mulberry Mary-Ann. Long and sweet as Jan says. I hunt for them voraciously when I know they are starting to ripen. I have a Dwarf Pink.
I don't notice the birds paying much attention if any to my fruit.
The shahtoot mulberries can grow up to about 10 cm long while remaining quite thin and taste more like lollies than berries to me! (I have never had one make it inside the house) I bag them like all of my fruit in the hopes of keeping it for myself. I've got a Dwarf Red Shahtoot.
showing my ignorance here and poor internet but what is the difference between shahoot and mulberries we have white red and black mulberries both in dwarf and regular so should be looking fir shahoot as well and if there is a difference which are the better producers - which do the birds like least and what are the best growing conditions for the shahoots - we have clay slightly acid soils
My Pink Shatoot are just starting to ripen up.
