Russian White Mulberry (Morus Alba Tatarica) 50 seeds (#518)

This Russian Mulberry is similar to White Mulberry, but mor ehardy (zone 4). Trees are native the eastern half of North America and yet will thrive just about everywhere.
Mulberries are generally eaten fresh, but also can be made into jelly or syrups for flavoring ice creams, yogurts, or cakes.
The trees are rapid growers from 4,50 - 15 m (15-50'). Can be kept smaller with pruning.
Mulberries are very high in protein for a fruit, and are used in silvopasture systems especially as forage for chickens and hogs. Cattle readily browse the foliage which has superior feed value to corn.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Time to sow - January to April inside or in cold frame in autumn.
Prior to sowing soak seeds for 24-48 hours and drain. Create a mix of 1:1 seed compost and sharp sand or vermiculite which is moist but not wet. Add seeds to the mix and place in a ziplock bag. Place in the fridge at +2-+4 for 2-3 months.
After startification sow onto moist compost, cover lightly with vermiculite. Keep moist at +15-+20C. Do not let the temperature rise above +25C.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to 8 cm pots and grow on for 2-3 years before planting in the final position.
Can be sown into a cold frame in autumn where natural winter cold will offer ideal conditions for germination to occur in spring as the weather warms.
