Chinese Mulberry Tree

Chinese Mulberry TreeThe Chinese mulberry (Morus alba), with white fruit, holds a unique economic position, as its leaves are the chosen food of silkworms. No substitute has ever robbed this tree of its pre-eminence maintained for centuries, in its own field of usefulness. The hardy Russian mulberries are derived from Morns alba.
