I don't know if I did something wrong. I doubt it but my mulberry stick is dead. I took the pruners today and chopped off a piece of the stick four inches from the top and that thing is completely dead. I called Baker's to complain. I know they don't refund but I was told they had a lot of problems with their bare roots this year. Anyone know where I can get a mulberry tree? I still really want one but if I can't get one ASAP I'm replacing it with an olive tree because I know where I can buy one.
Not many choices left in the Valley.
Time is running out, but you can still mail order out of the Pacific Northwest -- http://www.onegreenworld.com//index.php?cPath=1_41
That link doesn't have what I want and I'd prefer local if I can. Looking for either Persian or Pakistani mulberry. I've called around and am not having much luck. Would much prefer a mulberry tree to olive, but I do like olives too and I need a tree in that spot.
Tropica Mango posted pics on their facebook page of their mulberry trees leafed out and fruiting for sale...
thank you do you have a link or phone number?
I saw your note Erica - http://www.tropicamango.com/
Thanks I haven't called yet but their online ordering says sold out. I'm hoping it's wrong or that the rare fruit growers can help me out. I can't believe how much I want this silly tree, but my husband has me all worked up over it. He fell in love with them back in Pennsylvania and they are the taste of a childhood memory for him. I just imagine jam, and cobbler and pie....
Yes, about the childhood memory. When I figured out which mulberry everyone was commenting about that is what I remember from a dwarf in our neighborhood - wonderful fruit and huge.
He doesn't keep his website very up to date, but if you use Facebook, he seems to use that daily and he posted the pic of the mulberries yesterday. Like TropicaMango on Facebook and leave him a message or call and talk to him.
Hi all, I was just over to Tropica Mango. Alex has about 5 or so of the Persian Mulberries and a some white and also a weeping one!
Ooh. A weeping mulberry...That would be awesome!
The one I saw there, Karis, had berries - nice sweet taste - he encouraged me to try one. I don't have room the huge tree.
Alex also gave me a possible answer on my 'dwarf M. Nigra' question. The East is colder and the warm loving mulberry may simply not get too big there.
You didn't see how much they cost by chance did you?
