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 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').
