This article will help figure out why the fruit drops. I suspect inadequate pollination, since it is further away from the other trees that bear fruit. Some types of mulberry trees need a male pollinator tree and that may be the case here. The pollinator tree may be in a neighbor's yard. Another possibility is because the tree is in the middle of the yard it is in a windy site, which will knock fruit off the tree.
