Has anyone grow Pakistani mulberry in the Seattle area/PNW? Any suggestion?
The info I read says that it can grow to 50 ft. Can it be pruned to keep it smaller?

If your site stays above ~10F most of the time try Morus nigra instead. The true black mulberry (as opposed to M. alba with black fruits) is a small, fig-like tree, supposed to produce large fruits of unmatched flavor - although for some reason the otherwise true-to-type one next door to me produces dinky ones that seem to me nothing special at all.

Thanks bboy, that's a good idea.
