Red Gelato mulberries contain enough sugar to sun dry them to be eaten later during the Winter. The heavy leaf cover on the Gelato Red Mulberry tree hides the berries underneath in the shade from hungry birds, and can withstand temperatures of minus below zero F. Fat red Gelato mulberries were reported to have been hybridized in Italy from American native mulberry trees. Red mulberry fruit ripen in June, a period in between the early ripening white mulberry and the late maturing black mulberry.
