Mulberry Facts

Mulberry bushes are actually several species of trees from the genus Morus. Common names for Mulberry trees are usually specific to a particular species of Morus. Some common names follow the color, such as Black Mulberry for Morus nigra, Red Mulberry for Morus rubra, and White Mulberry for Morus alba. Some common names follow the native location, such as African Mulberry for Morus mesozygia, Chinese Mulberry for Morus australis, and Texas Mulberry for Morus microphylla. Morus trees are not to be confused with the closely related genus Broussonetia, also known as Mulberry, such as Broussonetia papyrifera, or Paper Mulberry.
