I think eBay hides listing that won't ship to your country.

That is Adam's ebay page.  Each of those "pictures" on that page are his auctions.  Just click on each plant picture for the actual plant auction page.

Hi friend,
Adam only ship plants within USA. So if you have shipping address in your account that is outside of USA, you can not see these auction.

u can eat them a bit early, and they are tart, with a snap, crispy almost like baby corn!  You can pick them without them staining your hands, unlike most other varieties I have, that are softer fleshed, and leak juice on your fingers.

then u can eat them fully ripe, when they are quite sweet, but also have a touch of tart.

the main attraction for this variety IMO is the dwarf size, and incredible productivity, and large size of fruits!  They are great for making pies, or using in cooking, but also very good for eating fresh. 

If you are looking for an all sweet mulberry, with no tartness at all, then this one is not for you.

OK. I like sweet + tart, but the Boss likes hers pure sweet. If it tastes anything like the tice (not sure if you're had that one), then I'd be down. I love Tice mullbary, but the tree is gargantuan.

Im with ya on Tice, in both taste and size...unfortunately there is nothing comparable.

You have the green for the Boss (didnt you guys get two of them?), that is the sweetest.

You might like the Pakistani Red.  It has more of a red berry flavor in its profile.

Is that the same as pakistani black with the long fruits? I actually just bought one of those a few days ago. Really delicious fruit.

Similar but there is one that ripens to a (ruby) reddish color and does not go to fully "black"

That's a nice Thai dwarf mulberry, with multiple branches.

My order arrived in great condition. Expert packaging!

Healthy happy looking plant.  Seems to have fared quite well despite the hot weather.

Thanks!

Thanks Roblack!!!

I give them full sun, and once your tree gets established, maybe try pruning it, or just punch the tips of the branches, and tie them down, to encourage lateral buds to start sprouting, and it should induce fruition, again and again....but you have to keep cutting off old wood, to encourage new wood to grow...by the end of the season, the fruit quality is not as good as spring, but it's still worth eating.

I got my tree to fruit about 5-6 times easy in one season, and it's easy to root cuttings.
