    i have never seen white mulberries before. they look like maggots. its a bit off-putting. my grandparents had a regular mulberry tree in their yard when i was growing up. i liked to eat them before they ripened, when they were pink & slightly green. they were crunchy & sour. i would get a bell ache. :)

    these grow wild here in rhode island! a friend of mine has an enormous tree and when we go to harvest his sour cherries every june, we give his mulberry a good cleaning. yummy!!

    I really, really want to try those!
    I guess I’m weird. They don’t look gross to me.

    I grow one white mulberry tree in my backyard. It produces abundant fruits in late spring. They are yummy looking and delicious. All my friends who came and tried them like the taste very much. They all envy that I have a nice tree like this. The fruits look like collections of white pearls with a tint of lilac color.
    They are loaded with good-for-you antioxidant. Any one who is not allergic to berries and has a sweet tooth should give it a try.

    Wow, I had never noticed the maggot connection. I’ve had more of the dark purple finger-staining kind. In fact, when I had to make a map of my neighborhood as a girl scout, the main attractions were the mailboxes (I was a dedicated pen pal) and the mulberry trees.

    Anyway, good stuff that a lot of people — often the people who own the trees — don’t know/care are edible.
