Harvesting mulberries, Illinois everbearing

2 months ago

As mentioned previously mulberrries don’t grow around here at all. I’ve got a tree started from a mail order plant that is producing well After 7-9 years.

I have read that to harvest you put a blanket down and shake branches.

Ive tried, no luck at all! Shake as hard as you want, not even the over ripe fruit drop.

Any idea if it’s the variety that don’t drop, or perhaps a cultural issue I could change??
