    We have Mulberries (Morus alba) growing here in zone 3 and there are two 
Illinois Everbearing (rated for zone 4) that I know of.  But then, the USDA 
says we have graduated to zone 4 now with Global Warming upon us.  I don't 
remember where I got mine (one of each), either Mackay Nursery or Burnt 
Ridge Nursery.

Most of the mulberries don't seem to be real cold-hardy. But I have
seen, in a catalog, a Geraldi Dwarf Mulberry that's supposed to be hardy
to zone 5. Anyone familiar with this? The description reads, "Excellent
fruits similar to Collier and IL Everbearing on a 6' tall tree." That
would certainly be small enough!  :-)   But it doesn't say how
abundantly it produces. And I've learned not to put too much faith in
these promotional descriptions, anyway.

Any suggestions? Thanks much!

Lincoln, NE (zone 5)
