WANTED: Mulberry Cuttings

Posted by wildforager 5b-WI (My Page) on

Hello,

I'm looking for mulberry tree cuttings for grafting. I have some seedlings that I would like to graft named varieties onto. I might be interested in mulberries that are not named but have really good flavor. You can see my trade list for ideas of what I have. I will also have a wide variety of other fruit tree cuttings in the next month or so. I graft a lot of trees this time of year. Hope to hear from you!

RE: WANTED: Mulberry Cuttings

wildforager,
Hello again.We talked a little on the Fruit forum about Cornus mas.I do have a Wellington Mulberry that was planted last year that had put on about 4-5 feet of new growth last Summer.It needs to be cut a little.I have a couple of Russian White Mulberry plants in pots that I am going to try to graft to,but will have plenty extra.Most is pencil thickness and a bit smaller.If that can be used,then I can send some.
I also saw your want list.I have a bunch of Pawpaw seedlings grown from seed this year.There are three main varieties.Ones from the Kentucky Champion tree,which is big,others came out of two fruits from a tree in Fremont,California,the only Pawpaw I tasted,which was very good.The grower,Bill Merrill said the tree was a cross between Corwin Davis and a local San Jose grower's.The other plants I have came from a mix of seeds sent to me by Benny L.,a member on the Fruit forum,who lives in Tennessee.They are all fairly small plants,about 6-8 inches.Let me know if interested in any.Brady

I am not sure what kind I have here, but the tree was here when we moved in. It grows great, and produces tons and tons of fruit! I have never eaten them, but the neighbourhood kids love to come eat the fruits lol

I could not find any photos of the tree its self, but I do have a photo of one of the berries :) - Sorry, it is not the best quality, as I took it while playing around with my new camera :)

I am interested in getting some mulberry cuttings or trees that are actually female. I have a good-sized tree that I watch for fruit every year, it develops abundant structures the look like fruiting buds, but fails to flower, so I guess it must be male. I have been unable to find reliably sexed mulberry trees from commercial sources, so I'm not sure how to get any fruit from any mulberry tree I have planted. Where can I get some help on this? I have been trying for over 10 years. Cheryl
