The Red Mulberry (Morus rubra) is an uncommon deciduous medium-sized tree with short trunk, broad rounded crown with milky like sap. Red Mulberry is usually dioecious (male and female flowers on separate trees), although less often it is monoecious (male and female flowers on the same tree). Flowers are in small clusters, but inconspicuous. The woody root system is shallow and spreading; leaves turn yellow and often remain late into autumn. The deep purple fruits of the female tree are sweet and relished by wildlife but can be quite messy, plant away from areas that are susceptible to staining; pavements, automobile, furniture, barrier walls etc. Fruit turns a deep purple, almost black when ripe.
