Anyone have 'Issai' Mulberry ??

I found a listing for 'Issai' Mulberry and it says its a super dwarf. Looks interesting. I'm guessing the original scionwood must have come from a witches broom like most dwarf Ginkgos. Does anyone have this? How's the fruit? I'm really curious about this tree.

Here is a link that might be useful: Here's the listing

I've never ordered from Logee's so I can't comment on their service. I would recommend checking out their reputation on garden watchdog before ordering. I wish I would have checked out Burgess nursery before I ordered paw paw seedlings last year. Burgess send out their paw paws bare root with no damp paper or packing and they arrived dry as a bone. Out of 30 trees 5 lived, barely. Got replacements and they were dry too. Moral of the story, do your homework on the nurseries!

I ordered from one of Burgess's affiliates,Direct Gardening.The plants came bare root also in a big plastic trash bag.Amazingly,only two out of about a dozen didn't survive. Brady

I've ordered from Logee's several times. They're first rate.
Burgess is one of the cheapest places; you get what you pay for.
