The Himalayan mulberry (Morus macroura) is a plant native to the Himalayan region of Asia. It is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 30 feet tall, with a rounded crown and a straight trunk. The leaves are oval-shaped and have a pointed tip, and they are typically 3-6 inches long. The flowers are small and inconspicuous, and they are followed by small, edible berries that ripen in the summer.
The Himalayan mulberry prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and it can tolerate a wide range of soil types. It is not particularly fussy about soil pH, but it does prefer a slightly acidic to neutral soil. The plant can be grown from seed, but it can also be propagated by rooting cuttings. It is generally a fast-growing plant, and it can be pruned to maintain its shape and size.
The berries are edible and can be eaten fresh or used in jams and jellies. The leaves are also edible and are sometimes used in traditional medicine.
The Himalayan mulberry is not particularly winter hardy, and it may suffer from dieback in cold climates. It can also be susceptible to insect pests and diseases, so it may require regular pest and disease control measures.
