Mulberry 'Charlton House'
Morus nigra, Black Mulberry, Common MulberryNamed after, and originating from the oldest of its species in the country, which was planted at Charlton House in 1608 at the behest of Charles I. Mulberry ‘Charlton House’ makes a stunning, large tree with gnarled bark, heart-shaped leaves and an aged habit. The black mulberry tree is long lived but slow-growing, often taking up to six years to produce fruit, and producing its heaviest crops after a cold winter. However with maturity this self fertile tree produces dark red, almost black berries with a juicy, distinctive, sweet flavour. The mulberry fruit matures slowly during the summer months and ripens during August. A choice tree for a spacious garden! Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 15m (49’).
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4 years.
RubusThis hybrid berry is similar to the tayberry but with attractive fruits that are brighter red in colour. The large berries can be harvested from July for a delicious summertime dessert. Tummelberries enjoy a sunny position but they can be grown in partial shade, although this may reduce the crop yield. Height: 2m. Spread: 2.5m.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
