General description

General description: Mulberries are deciduous trees in the Moraceae family, also known as the mulberry or fig family. Plants in this family secrete a milky sap.


Flowers: This is a monoicous species, which means that the male and female flowers appear on the same tree. The mulberry flowers are inconspicuous with a yellowish tinge and give off a light and pleasant fragrance. The flowers are inconspicuous, yellowish green in colour. The male flowers consist of four petals and four stamens and grow gathered in erect catkins. The female flowers are gathered in short-stalked heads with two pistils. For better fruiting, planting two mulberry seedlings is recommended.


Blooming: Gerardi Dwarf blooms from march until June.


Leaves: A peculiarity of the mulberry is the diversity of leaves on one tree. There can be lobed and entire leaves, most of them are heart-shaped or ovate. A common feature is the serrated margin of the leaf blade. They are light green, soft and thin and all turn golden yellow in autumn. The leaves are usually around 10 cm long and 8 cm wide.


Fruit: The huge fruit are up to 5 cm long, very tasty and super sweet. They range in colour from white to pink, red to black. They are rich in antioxidants, which makes them extremely healthy. An additional advantage is the early start of fruiting - the first harvest can be enjoyed as early as in the second year of cultivation. Elderberries ripen in June/July and fall off quickly.


Cultivation requirements: Mulberries are a very tolerant species when it comes to soil conditions and likes both sunny and semi-shaded spots. However, they grow best when planted in light, sandy, permeable, moderately moist soils and in warm and sunny locations, sheltered from wind. Samyl does not like being too wet, so it shouldn't be planted in an area where the water table is high.


Care: Samyl responds very well to pruning and shaping. If pruning to form or restrict growth, this should be done at the end of winter. This shrub produces many root suckers.


Overwintering: Samyl is frost hardy (it tolerates temperatures down to -20°C). In severe winters in colder regions of Poland it may freeze, so it requires a winter cover (especially young seedlings). This mulberry recovers quickly from winterkill.


Origin: Asia.
