Paper Mulberry    £7.00

Broussonetia papyrifera   In stock  

The bark of this small tree has traditionally been used for paper making throughout Asia being perfect for that job, though it's here because of its peculiar fruit.

With large downy leaves, the flowers which arrive in April and May are insignificant to say the least but the fruit is bizarre, resembling an orangey-red sea urchin with fleshy spines, it's round, about 3-4cm, sweet and juicy. Drought tolerant it grows well in poor soils though will do better with some shelter in the colder parts of the country.
