White mulberry 20 PCS fresh seeds, Morus alba

Oreshka seeds
White mulberry (lat. Morus alba)

Tree up to 15-18 m high with a spreading spherical crown. The trunk and large branches are covered with grayish-brown bark. The leaves are broadly ovate, unequal at the base, petiolate, finger-toothed along the edge, 5-15 cm long. They are located on shoots of two types: elongated vegetative and shortened fruiting.

The flowers are unisexual, collected in inflorescences: staminate - in drooping cylindrical spikes, pistillate - in short oval ones on very short peduncles. It blooms in April - May, the fruits ripen in May - June.

The inflorescences consist of achenes with an overgrown perianth, up to 4 cm long, cylindrical, white or colored pink or red. The taste is sickly sweet. They are edible fresh (white, soft and the branches fall to the ground when slightly shaken); the taste is inferior in richness to black mulberry.

Grows quickly from a young age. It is photophilous, however, and tolerates shading. Tolerant to heat, drought, undemanding to soil, but prefers fertile deep sandy and loamy soils, especially with the presence of lime.

USDA Hardiness Zone: 5 (-29°C to -23°C).
