Problem with mulberry tree

I have a tree which is ten years old and bears lots of fruit. Unfortunately they all drop off before ripening. The tree looks healthy. Can you help?

The most common reason for mulberry trees to prematurely drop fruit is stress, especially if there's been a drought. They need plenty of water to fruit well. You may also want to check the tree for signs of insect pests.
