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.

Pruning Information: Pruning may be required on Mulberry trees constituting eight feet or more in size so as to comport with UPS Shipping requirements. For this reason, the Mulberry tree(s) you receive may not be the actual height you ordered due to it being pruned up to one third of the total size immediately prior to shipping unless you have made prior arrangements with us to ship the product to you by motor freight. Although you should receive the size ordered if shipped by motor freight, note that shipping by motor freight will likely increase your shipping costs.
Shipping Method: UPS Ground and Motor Freight if the proper arrangements have been made by the customer prior to shipping. Shipping costs do apply on Motor Freight shipments, not covered by any sales promotions.
