You know I meant to ask him more about that.
I wonder what specific fungal problems there were and can it be overcome?
Were there any varieties that may be more resistant?
He also told be the Nigra and rubus/alba can not readily cross because of different chromosome count. I would love to dig into that further to see if anyone has tried working with halving or doubling them to make them match. I have had some Morus nigras in CA that were heavenly! I do have "Noir of Spain" in the yard that is growing very weakly. I hope it will settle in and begin to take off. I got it from Hidden Springs Nursery. They have it in green house - it seems to do fine.
I always love the talks at the NAFEX meeting, but there is so little time to delve into questions from everyone and keep on schedule.
I had AJs email at one time, but I need to get it again.

Bullard who is from North Carolina and spoke on Mulberries at the last NAFEX Meeting, Morus nigra does poorly on the east coast due to fungal problems brought on by high humidity. It apparently dies from the fungal problems as much or more than hardiness issues there.
