Mulberry Bush - Charlotte Russe
We all know the nursery rhyme 'Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush' but have you ever thought of growing your own?
We know it can be tricky to find the fruits in supermarkets, and if they bring back memories of being young and picking the fruit straight from the plant then this incredibly easy to grow fruit is for you. But don't be put off about having a large tree because you can have all the joys of growing your own mulberries without the hassle of it taking over.
This dwarf, compact variety only reaches a height of approximately 1.5m (compared to normal mulberries that can reach up to 8m in height), making it suitable for any garden. It’s self-pollinating, fully hardy and fruits on both old and new wood, meaning you can be picking mulberries within the first year as opposed to the usual 8 or 9 years it takes most other mulberries. And unlike other varieties that only produce fruit over a 3-week period towards the end of summer, Charlotte Russe (Matsunaga PBR) produces berries over a very long period, from May right through until September! Please note: These plants will go into dormancy in the autumn and will lose their leaves.
And that'ts not all that this mulberry has to offer, it was named Plant of the year at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2017 - the first ever edible to be awarded the accolade. Plus it comes in a beautiful decorative pot with the words of the nursery rhyme around the top making a beautiful gift for a green-fingered friend or family member to display on the patio.
