I got mine from Pete Kanaris, price has gone up but there's a 15% sale, code LABOR23
Mine's not really big enough to take cuttings yet.

Any intel on this variety? Never heard of it.

I'm a little wary of a seller that claims World's Best is "absolutely delicious". ;)
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

Hello,

Looking to buy mulberry tree “sixth street”

Thanks!
Are you sure it will fruit in your zone?
One website says zone 6-9
It is from Gainesville
Does anyone have a fruiting tree in zone 10?

Mine set a few fruits, I'm in zone 10.  I didn't buy it for its fruit quality necessarily, but rather its nematode resistance as a rootstock.  Florida Fruit Geek did a small experiment with nematode resistance and wrote a blog post about it.

Thanks for the info Janet. Still looking. Hoping to find one locally to avoid shipping.
Yes, planning to use it for root stock. 😃
