The King White Shahtoot Mulberry is also known as the Tibetan Mulberry, Himalayan Mulberry or Finger Mulberry. It's a smaller tree than the Black Mulberry, so good for small orchards and gardens and has lovely spreading branches. It responds well to pruning, and once established, it can have several crops in a season. The King White Shahtoot Mulberry grows well in a large pot or the ground.
