Broussonetia (Paper Mulberry)

Paper Mulberry is one out of only four known species from the Mulberry family (Moraceae) and is native in eastern Asia. It is an ornamental tall and broad, winter hardy deciduous tree with smoothly pubescent, large oval to heart shaped, yellowish-green leaves and pendulous round inflorescences followed by decorative protruding, edible bright orange fruit flesh in late summer and autumn. It requires a humus rich soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot. Younger plants require some protective dry mulch layer against freezing through in winter.
Sow seeds flat in any rich, well drained soil and keep pots outside in a protected spot. Seeds require a prolonged cooling period prior to germination in late spring. Carefully transplant young plants to the final spot in the garden in autumn or spring.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
20 seeds per package.
