Illinois Everbearing mulberry trees

Morus alba x Morus rubra
  • Self-fertility: Self-fertile

Illinois Everbearing is a hybrid mulberry, notable for its long black fruits. It produces fruits over a period of several weeks in mid-summer.

Unlike the traditional English mulberries which take many years to start bearing, Illinois Everbearing should begin fruiting after 3-4 years. It also won't get so big - probably around 4m after 10 years.

Growing and Training

Illinois Everbearing is cold-hardy and easy to grow. However for best results in northern European climates it is best to plant in a warm sheltered spot in full sun, with plenty of space around it, and avoid pruning.


Illinois Everbearing originates from the USA and is a hybrid of the White mulberry and North American species - Morus alba x Morus rubra.
