Description
Named 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.
Estimated time to best yields: 10 years.

How to Grow
Grow mulberry trees in moist, slightly acid soil in a sheltered position in full sun. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil, and drive a stake into the planting hole to support the tree once it is planted. Plant mulberries at the same soil level as they were growing at the nursery, and use a tree tie to fasten the tree to the stake.
More Info

Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Mulberries can be slow to break bud in the spring so frost damage to flowers rarely occurs. Water mulberry trees well during particularly dry periods.

Mulberries should be allowed to develop naturally, removing only the occasional misplaced or damaged stem. Unwanted laterals on the main stem can be shortened in the first year and removed in the second year to leave a clear stem. Prune mulberries only while dormant in winter to prevent excessive bleeding of sap.
