Q.Black mulberries turning white and soft

Zone Japan | Anonymous added on May 18, 2020 | Answered

My fruit-bearing black mulberry tree, from which we have had berries for 5 years, is presenting mixed black and white berries this season – mostly white, very soft, unedible white fruit. What’s happening? Thanks!

This could be a lack of phosphorus and potassium. Each year add a 10-10-10 application of fertilizer or add compost around the tree. This can help to give it the proper nutrient balance that it needs.
