Artist's Description

The black mulberry (morus nigra) is generally considered the best tasting of the various mulberry species. It is grown for its delicious, raspberry-like fruit, mulberries. They have a unique tart-sweet taste and are eaten fresh or can be used just like any berry.
The fruit, green at first, turns red then a deep, dark purple in late summer when it is ready to be picked. Black mulberry is a medium sized deciduous tree usually only to 6-9m but can reach 15m. It has heart-shaped leaves and inconspicuous flowers in late spring. Trees are known to be very long lived and can bear fruit for several hundred years.
I have one in my backyard and the mulberries are ripe now! How delicious! (Gauteng, South Africa)
