This is a mullbery I discovered on a street corner in Atlanta,GA  It has a
nice size and flavor. I was in front of my girlfriends apartment so I named
it after her. 
Now Zone 8a!! Atlanta, GA

Anyone know the skinny on the mulberry variety called 'Kim'? There's a
picture of it on Cliff England's webpage taken by Robert Hamilton or NAFEX.
It seems remarkable in size, yet I can't find any info about it anywhere. I'm
not sure if the list will allow pictures posted to email, but here goes. If
not, go to and click on 'fruit trees', then
'mulberry'. Also notable is 'korean', which I assume is the same as Kokuso 20.

Are the presentations happening on Thursday? Also I could bring up a
couple cases of the wines I make, will it be set up like a wine
tasting so I could serve and talk about them?
