The mulberry, with its tendency to spread and thrive, is often considered a weed. Urban or rural, mulberry trees can survive and multiply in places where nothing else will. In an urban setting, they are found most often along fences, in neglected lots or side yards and areas that don’t get mowed often.
I’m here to make the case for the mulberry, not just as a weed, but as a wild fruit we can enjoy with little effort, just about anywhere. They are subtly sweet and boast a multitude of health benefits!
