A sweet gift from nature, the ability to harvest and market, almost impossible! But it is suitable for self-picking!!
Almost everyone has some memory related to mulberry trees: some of the stories we heard:
Oh… grew up right next to the house every day we went out to eat..
Really tasty like honey
When we were kids we climbed the trees (and we didn’t always manage to get down, but it was delicious at the top of the tree)
Oh, this reminds me of my parents’ house (in a kibbutz, in Russia, or just…)
The most delicious fruit there is…
Oh that’s what’s dirty…
How come the trees are so low with you..
more and more
We grow several varieties of mulberries: black (regular, Nissim and Landau mulberries), white (regular and Shavei Zion) and the favorite of all –
Pakistani (or Afghani, no one really knows) mulberry tree.
Wait a minute, how do you pick the strawberries, the trees are huge?
So it’s not!!
We don’t just grow the trees, we design the trees so that everyone can pick without any problem, that is, the fruit branches reach almost to the ground, if by pruning, supporting and tying the branches.
The ripening season of the tree strawberries almost coincides with that of the black raspberry, late April/early May until early July.
In this case the story is very simple!!!
No pest control! Well, almost true, we use traps for mass capture to control the Mediterranean fruit wastage.
And that’s it!
