Q.My New Transplanted Mulberry Tree Is Seasonally Confused. It Is Just Now (Fall) Producing Small Fruit. What Do I Do?

Zone Zone 7A | Anonymous added on November 1, 2022 | Answered

I got a Mulberry tree from a nursery. They were unable to sell it, and gave it to me along with my purchase. It had been in a very shady and crowded spot on their property. It was in sad shape. I planted it in August, and after a few weeks I could see it was happy and growing new leaves. My concern is that I just noticed it is growing small fruit, and I worry it is not prepared for the winter. Is that a thing? Any advice to help?
