Keep in mind
When growing a mulberry tree, no pesticide is used since there are no harmful bugs feeding from these. For this reason mulberry is considered as one of the most ecological products of the world.
Mulberry should be picked from branches and consumed immediately. Its taste starts to change slowly within a few hours after its picked. The reason for this is that some active matters it contains changes a couple of hours after it is picked. Especially petunidin starts to lose its effect after a while. Dried mulberries is a food that kids enjoy eating. With their splendid taste mulberry molasses and black mulberry are some of the favorites of gourmets.
Especially white mulberry is diuretic. Therefore some physicians recommend waiting until 1 to give mulberry to babies. As a matter of fact in some sources it is stated that you should wait until baby is 2 years old.
