Morus Nigra Mulberry?
I probably should have posted this before my purchase but here goes.
I purchased a Morus Nigra Noir of Spain Black Mulberry. I'm expecting it to arrive this Thursday. A few people on some other forums had said it was the best tasting of all the mulberries. I purchased it from a nursery that sells fifteen mulberry varieties. They are a farm and grow them all as large trees too. They also say itÃ¢ÂÂs the best tasting and that when they are ripe they bring every person who comes to their farm to this variety to sample.
The thing is they had never sold one here before. The owner told me they need chill hours and was not sure it would fruit until I told her my Illinois Everbearing fruits reliably. I was also told that this variety is a slow grower. Nothing at all like my IE which grows like crazy in full Arizona sun. She also said it may take a few years to fruit. Unlike my IE which fruited when I planted it and the cuttings I'm attempting to root have fruit on them too.
So my late questions are these.....
Has anyone here grown a Morus Nigra here in the valley?
Does it do well in full sun?
How fast does it grow?
How long did it take to fruit?
How do you like it's fruit?
Thisisme hoping somebody has some good news for me.
