The Black Mulberry (Morus Nigra L.) is a species d 'fruit trees originating fromasia Western (south of Caucase, Armenie, Iran) and naturalized in North America (Canada, United States), in Europe and in China and belonging to the family of Moraracées.

The black mulberry is a monoic tree with slow growth up to 10 to 20 meters high.

  • The white mulberry fruit presents a peduncle long (sometimes the length of the fruit) while the black mulberry has, so to speak, a peduncle, or a very short peduncle.
  • The fruit of the white mulberry is gentle before maturity, while at the same stage that of the black mulberry is very acidic. Complete maturity, that of the white mulberry is quite bland and very sweet, that of the black mulberry is sweet and slightly tangy.
  • The flavor of the fruit of the MûRier Noir appeals to almost all of the general public. The fruits of the white mulberry are generally little estimated in France, but those of the cultivars selected for their fruits have a high taste value. They are very appreciated in the countries which cultivate them, in Middle East (Iran, Syrie, Lebanon, Israel) Notamment.
