The Dwarf Red Shahtoot Mulberry is a fantastic backyard dwarf mulberry variety that grows to a height of 2-4 metres. The fruit is deliciously sweet, a maroon-red colour, hang in clusters and have an elongated finger-like shape measuring roughly 6-10 centimetres. They are wonderful to eat fresh from the tree or use in baking and preserves.

This variety is ideal for growing either in a pot or planting out into your garden! It's a great option to consider if you have limited space in your backyard or would like to grow your fruit trees in pots. Once established, it's possible to get multiple crops in a season with care and pruning. It's a deciduous tree, so it will lose all its leaves in Autumn and regrow in Spring. Hardy and robust grower with distinctive and beautiful foliage.
