Description for Shahtoot, Mulberry, Tuti ( Big Leaves )

Morus comprises 10 to 16 species of deciduous trees. Mulberries are fast-growing when young, but soon become slow-growing. The mulberry tree has a spreading habit and becomes crooked and gnarled with time, making an architectural feature.

It has attractive leaves. Immature fruits are white, green, or pale yellow. In most species the fruits turn pink and then red while ripening, then dark purple or black, and have a sweet flavor when fully ripe.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Shahtoot, Mulberry, Tuti White Early autumn or May Up to 10 m Easy to grow

Planting and care

Plant mulberries in spring as the soil warm up. Tolerant of a range of soils, mulberries can be grown against walls if space is limited. You can also propagate mulberry trees from cuttings. Mulching also resists heat in summer, so a top layer of mulch is a good idea for a mulberry tree growing in a warm climate. Plant the cuttings/saplings at a spacing of 75 / 105 cm x 90 cm.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun Moist, loamy soil Keep the soil moist 20 to 28 degrees C In late winter, apply a general purpose fertilizer. In spring, apply a mulch of organic matter such as well-rotted manure.
