Q.Fruitless Mulberry Tree

Anonymous added on May 5, 2011 | Answered

I live Delta, Utah and I would like to know if the fruitless Mulberry tree will survive in Delta? My parents had them in Tucson, Arizona and we loved them. Fast growing and large leaves, which made it easy to clean up. We want to plant some trees at the church building for shade. If the fruitless Mulberry will not work, would you have a recommendation on what tree to plant?

The answer to your question is yes. These trees can be grown in your area. In fact, did you know that Mulberry trees represent a distinct phase of Utah’s history? The silk industry, which started in Utah during the 1860s and continued in some places for decades, relied on mulberry leaves as food for the silk worms.
