Mulberry cv. Black Prince

The tree is large, with the fruits ripening mid to late June in Sacramento Valley. The fruits are up to 2 inches long, fat, very dark with the lighter middle core. They are sweet with some acid, and nicely flavored. The fruit holds well for a mulberry and may have a good shelf life (when I get enough to keep them on a shelf).

The cultivar should be frost resistant, but this needs to be evaluated better in the US.  It grows as far North as Lithuania and Southern Finland.


I am planning to make this accession more available in the US. Currently we have one small grafted tree available for purchase at reallygoodplants.com

Not so common plums. Sultan, Peach-plum Hybrid DPRU 377, and Jefferson

Sultan  plum was recently revived by few CRFG members.  I grafted this cultivar in 2018.  It produced some fruits the first time this year...
