Typing our Mulberry Cuttings

All of our products are grown from trees on our farm. We don't sell anything that comes from a third party. We use the name that our source material had and try to provide enough photos and videos of the plant or fruit for you to confirm type through your own research. Unfortunately we can't provide genetic testing or an extended pedigree. But if you have any questions about a specific product, please contact us.

Specific Cultivar Information

Other than a brief description, we don't go into detail on whether a plant will or will not survive in your location. We are maritime pacific northwest zone 8A. Our winter cold temperatures will occasionally dip into the low 20's. The mother plants of all our cuttings survive unprotected outdoors here. Because we don't have any experience with these plants in other zones, we don't provide specific growing information for other locations.  Please visit growingmulberry.org or other resources to make a decision on what will work in your area.

Due to state regulations, we do not ship Morus Alba products to the following location(s): Indiana

How we harvest and store our cuttings and scionwood

All of our cuttings are harvested when they go dormant. Immediately after the harvest, we sanitize the cuttings and store them in a climate controlled cooler at 37F. Based on our experience, mulberry cuttings are still viable after 60 days in storage.

Some Specifics on our Mulberry Cuttings.

Our mulberry cuttings are harvested when they are dormant. Dormancy for hardwood cuttings normally begins in late November. 

We propagate all of our mulberry trees by rooting so the length and caliper are optimized for the rooting process.  However, they can also be used for grafting if you can find a branch that matches the diameter of our cutting.

Our cuttings are first year wood at least eight inches long and will have three or more well-formed buds. They are cut to a diameter that is around 5/16" but may as low as 1/4" and as high as 3/8" or slightly wider. We find that cuttings between 1/4" and 3/8" have the best chance for success.

How we process your order

We only sell when we are ready to ship. We do not presale. When you order, we pull your sticks from our cooler or harvest directly from our field. We then pack your order in a cardboard box keep it in a cool location until we transport it to the Post Office. We only ship on Mondays (or Tuesdays if Monday is a holiday) to avoid having the plant material spend the weekend in the postal system. For more information on how we ship, see our shipping policies.
