Mulberry (Morus Nigra)

A shrub belonging to the Moraceae family, originating in the area between Persia and Nepal.

It has long been cultivated, particularly in China - the leaves being a favourite food of silkworms.

The plant also produces a fruit resembling a swollen loganberry or blackberry, which is crimson or purple-red when ripe.

Mulberries can be used in the same way as other berries, but care should be taken with the juice, as it will stain anything coming into contact.
