Ernest, I may be mistaken, but I don't think black mulberries (M. nigra)
are winter hardy in Kansas. The black mulberries you picked in Kansas
were most likely (M. rubra, M. alba or a hybrid of the two). Where was
this black mulberry tree growing and what makes you think it was M.
nigra? -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.

Jim Fruth writes that he grows mulberries in Pequot Lakes, Minnesota.
What variety of mulberry do you grow, Jim? I saw a few red mulberry
trees growing on and around the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. Saw
a few white mulberry seedlings growing in Minneapolis. Picked black
mulberries a few years ago in Kansas and thought they tasted good.
Never thought they would grow in zone 3a. Jim, you are not far from
Brainerd what zone are you in, 3b or 4?
