What kind of berry is this?

We recently moved into our house. My husband brought in this berry & leaf from a tree out back. It's about 15 ft tall & tucked in with a birch & pine tree. The tree is full of these berries.

I thought so!
Thank you so much for the quick response & confirming it for me.
Now I need to look for some good recipes for when they are ready. Probably jelly. We have an old crabapple tree too. It's going to be a fun season!

I read that there are a couple different kinds of mulberries, do you know if it's a "white" or "purple". (What I read said the white ones aren't always white, sometimes light purple)

White mulberry (Morus alba) matures to red-purple or purple-black and that is likely what it is. It isn't red mulberry (Morus rubra).

"White mulberry (Morus alba) matures to red-purple or purple-black "

Also white and pink.
