Cudrania tricuspidata - Chinese Mulberry

  • Cudrania tricuspidata is a slow growing deciduous tree that originates from East Asia, reaching heights of 6m. The leaves resemble those of the mulberry; however, they are thinner and smaller.

  • The fruit is somewhat similar to that of the mulberry and the lychee and is 1-2inches in diameter. When the fruits are ripe, they are a maroon-red colour with a dark, rich juicy red flesh and have a similar taste to a watermelon when soft.

  • The tree is resistant to temperatures as low as -15. Full sun, moist but well-drained soils are best for its optimal growth and flowering.
