Morus 'Mojo Berry'® 13cm
Morus rotundiloba BonBonBerry® Mojo Berry (‘Matsunaga’PBR) EU
Morus Mojo Berry gives fruits on old ánd new wood, meaning you can be picking mulberries within the first year as opposed to the usual 5 or 6 years it takes most other mulberries.
This dwarf, compact variety only reaches a height of approximately 1,5m (compared to normal mulberries that can reach up to 6-8m in height) making it suitable for any garden.
Unlike other varieties that only produce fruit over a 3-week period towards the end of summer, Mojo Berry produces berries over a very long period, from May right through until September.
The fruits are great to use for jam, cake or other dishes. Plant Mojo Berry in a fertile, well-drained soil in a place in the sun. Can be pruned in the spring.
Mojo Berry is beautiful as solitary on terrace or patio but also in the border or a mixed container. Hardy to -10 ºC.

Bred by 90-year-old Japanese breeder Mr Hajime Matsunaga, the Mojo Berry (Dwarf Mulberry) took over 40 years to develop. The tree was developed as a dwarf from an original variety, which was around four metres in height. Matsunga managed to breed the tree to the point where the Mojo Berry (also known as ‘Charlotte Russe’) grows to no more than one-and-a-half metres in height, and one metre wide.
Could this be the perfect tree for small gardens, including patios and terraces? Most certainly. Its compact frame means that you can have the pleasure of growing a full and fabulous Mulberry in your garden, while not worrying that it’ll become a nuisance due to its size.
