Mulberries grow on trees, not bushes. These fast-growing trees produce a massive amount of fruit each season, ranging in color from white to deep red to almost black. Mulberries are soft berries that grow in China and most of the U.S. You will most likely taste them in jam or syrup form (or, increasingly, dried) rather than fresh. But they just aren’t made to withstand long journeys.
A few weeks in late spring and early summer are good times to eat mulberries. The fruit can be pies, tarts, wines, and cordials.
