Mulberry is a Deciduous tree (tree that sheds its leaves annually) that belong to the Fig family. Native to warm regions of Asia, Africa and the Americas, they can also be found in subtropical and temperate parts of the world. Mulberry can produce male and female flowers on the same plant (Monoecious Plant) or on the separate trees (Dioecious Plant). Some types of Mulberry are able to produce fruit without pollination. The fruit of the Mulberry tree is a rich source of Vitamins A, C, E and K and essential minerals such as Iron, Magnesium and Potassium. In Ancient Rome the leaves of the White Mulberry tree were used in the treatment of diseases of the mouth, trachea and lungs. Red Mulberry trees can survive up to 75 years, while Black Mulberry trees can live and produce fruit for hundreds of years!
