Hmm,... I might try that when I find a particularly good wild mulberry here.

Surprisingly, considering how much trouble I have getting named
varieties to survive, the wild ones are almost impossible to kill, it
seems. They pop up everywhere here, and if you just cut the trunk off,
they sprout up again. So again, that might be an option for me.
I would have transplanted one of those in the first place, but the fruit
is so variable, that you never can tell what you'd get. But rooting a
cutting would solve that problem.

Yes, this is how we used to do it when I was a kid. And no worries about
the birds eating them, because there was always plenty enough for everyone.
