[NAFEX] Red mulberry (Morus rubra) cultivars?
filtertitle at aol.com

Does anyone have any pure (100%) red mulberry (Morus rubra) cultivars or personal selections? Lucky has two of his own selection; I was wondering if there were others out there. Please, keep in mind that many supposed red mulberry cultivars are really hybrids with Morus alba (i.e. cv. 'Illinois Everbearing', 'Lawson Dawson' - cf: Ken Benton, personal communication).

I got my cuttings started late, so I wasn't able to get them in the
ground in June & am just planting them now. Too early to say much
The website to get those varieties is:
I see that he's gonna raise the price of cuttings at the end of the
month so you may want to order soon if you want some.

Blackberries tend to overcrowd themselves whereupon they stop producing
fruit. You need to do some thinning to get them to bear.
