Mulberries

Post by hermiwormi » Sun Jul 01, 2018 7:09 pm

The neighbor across the street offered me and other neighbors the mulberries from the tree he's grown. For a little background, We're all pretty close in the neighborhood, and there have been no special chemicals used in anything we use. My neighbors with organic gardens use only organic materials, so the tree is safe. I was wondering if it would be safe to feed the fruit of the tree? I've heard of people feeding the leaves, but is the fruit safe?

The fruit is fine. I've fed to crabs previously.

I have only tried dry mulberries, they didn't like them.
