Hey all, as title says, wondering if anyone knows of any mulberry varieties that would do well in zone 7(b) here in the south, that are also resistant or (better yet!) immune to popcorn disease. It's a nasty fungus that has been decimating a lot of plants in neighboring areas, so I wanted to see if there were any ways to straight-up avoid.

Would like to try breeding with a long mulberry, like Pakistan.  Does anyone know if it/they are resistant to the Popcorn disease?
