This tree is the most loaded mulberry tree I've ever encountered (hence the name). The tree was found in Tidewater VA, zone 8a in 2020 and these pictures were taken May 20th (likely ripe the first week of June). The hardiness is unknown, but I'm trying it out in 7a this year and Taylor Malone is giving it a go in 6b. It is more determinant than most mulberries I encounter (drops fruit closer to all at once rather than an everbearing dropping for months at a time) and boy is it a heavy cropper. 

The downside to this tree is that the fruits did not have much taste. "Bland" might be an understatement. Despite its lack of flavor, I think it would be an incredible livestock tree. Chickens, pigs, etc. I am grafting this heavily (despite not knowing it's hardiness) because the volume alone is promising as a feed offset. 

I'm selling this scion with the intent of my customers grafting these scions to existing trees or rootstocks. I have no idea if it roots well, as I do not root mulberry cuttings.
