Description

It bears unisexual flowers, the sexes in separate spikes, or catkins, which are small, more or less cylindrical and in no way beautiful. The oblong, short-stalked 'fruit,' which when ripe is about an inch long and of an intense purple, is really a fruit-cluster, composed of little, closely-packed drupes, each containing one seed and enclosed by the four enlarged sepals, which have become succulent, thus forming the spurious berry. By detaching a single fruit from the cluster, the overlapping lobes of the former perianth may be still discerned.The berries can be used in making mulberry wine.

    I've purchased the tree as a anniversary present to my husband. Although I couldn't track the parcel along its way, the courier company called me a day earlier to update on the status. It arrived in a well wrapped box as a strong, young tree. Very happy with the quality from Beechwoodtrees.

    I ordered this product and was very impressed that it arrived in less than 48 hours! I received multiple messages informing me of when I should expect my delivery and it arrived, as promised, within the hour time slot I was given. The plant was very carefully packaged and was in excellent condition. Fantastic service - many thanks!

    I am pleased with the service provided by Beechwood Nurseries. The delivery was fast , the wrapping of the plant was carefully done to prevent damage in transit. The tree looks healthy and I hope it will do well in spite of having to plant it in full summer rather than later, in autumn.

    The plant arrived in perfect condition and packed in the best way that I have ever seen....even Royal Mail could not damage it in transit.
    I look forward to a fine tree developing.
