Shettoot (Morus alba)


A beatiful, large leaved, naturally well shaped tree that offers dense shade. Grows at about 1 ft/yr to 30 ft. Berries are mildly sweet, reminiscent of watermelon. This is the mulberry used to feed silkworms. Birds love the berries. The white mulberry is so-named for the color of its buds, rather than the color of its fruit. Leaves of the red mulberry are larger and thicker, blunt toothed and often lobed. Its berries are edible when ripe.
