Queen Luscious: (Morus rubra x hybrid)This is a stellar cultivar sporting the largest fruit we’ve found to date in early July. The flavor is phenomenal and the berries are upwards of 2 inches long, with the average being 1-1.5 inches. The original tree is growing next to a tree that is absolutely chock full of popcorn disease and Queen Luscious remains squeaky clean despite her neighbor. The tree will drop from Mid-May through Mid-July in zone 6b, with our thoughts heading towards it producing for even longer given a hot summer. Many mulberry hybrids are seemingly not fertile, but this Drops loads of fruit which ARE fertile, as these fruits contain many viable seeds. This is a tree where you’d want to plant out loads of seeds if you had the chance to trial the next best everbearing mulb. You don’t notice the seeds when you consume this fruit like you would a blackberry. Speaking of blackberries, this is a better alternative in my opinion. You could TOTALLY market these to unsuspecting customers as tree blackberries and have an earlier crop than anyone else. As with all of these selections, they are great for livestock and this one is exceptional for human consumption. *This cultivar has a $2/tree royalty
**These trees are budded and between 2 and 3 feet in height, growing on rootstock that is 1-2.5 inches in caliper. These trees will be bare root, alive, well and sleepily dormant by the time you pick them up. I am not responsible for anything that happens to them. The wood alone on these on these trees is worth the cost if you learn to propagate. Scion will not be for sale otherwise.**
