Awesome trees!
Reviewed By: Tim Harvey (Campton, NH)
I've ordered these trees 3 times now and have been satisfied each time! I am ordering more for my Florida home this spring! I live in central NH in the White Mountains and the trees have done fine. They produce bumper crops and grow very fast! My horses nibble them back every year and they seem to come back even stronger. My 5 year old trees are now 15' tall with 4'6" caliper trunks!

indestructible
Reviewed By: Lynn Campbell (Newberry, Michigan)
My sleddog team tried to chew my precious mulberry down to the base, and succeeded three times, but it came back fuller than ever and it was the only tree I ever got to grow in waterless Walker, Ca . When I moved, the lucky new occupant noticed it was green and healthy among the sagebrush plants.

I am perfectly content with the 2 young plants that arrived today. They were wrapped in moist paper and plastic. They appear strong and ready to GROW.

Great tasting-juicy
Reviewed By: Charlie (Hallsville, TX)
Used to grow these when I was younger. I set out 2 more last year and of all the tree varietys I set out they are the only ones that survived the drought. Deer ate them back 3 times. One ended up 6' and the other is 3'. The 6' is covered with berries. I have just finished a 6' fence around both of them. For you that have never ate mulberries they are like a long skinny blackberry except they don't have the hard seeds and are never sour. Wife wants some more as all the neighbors are lining up.

Very small pencil size
Reviewed By: krinca (Jackson, Ca)
They're puny sticks. That said, they are hadry and grew to 4' in the first year. I just put them from pots to ground and will see how well they do. I am hopeful that they remain vigorous in our foothills heat, clay and rocks!
