Hello Bassem, I live in central Illinois where there are black fruited Mulberries abound in the wild. I'm not sure of the species. Most are very sweet and juicy. They are so abundant that they are a pest as the birds spread them everywhere and the droppings stain clothing and vehicles bright purple. I can't understand why you wonder if there are any Mulberries for your area.

I have a variety called Kokuso, originally from Clifford England who is a list member, his website slips my mind. It's been in the ground 3 winters, badly mistreated, and transplanted twice in zone 5, western michigan. It is doing very well, vigorous growth, a little bit of tip dieback, no fruit yet. Supposed to be seedless. Anyways, it's surviving!

However, all the varieties I've seen may not do well in the cold compared to M. Alba and M. Rubra. Even some M. Alba varieties such as Pakistan, had sever winter kill, but have sprouted back for me. I know that some varieties will taste different even though they'll survive the cold. 
  Does anyone know of a variety that might do well for my area?
