Mulberry Trees are common in the eastern half of the US. They produce a lot of berries and the birds love them.
Mulberries have a mild flavor. You can bake with them.
The trees are cultivated as well as wild.
The berries can be dark purple, red or white. They are messy trees when the berries fall to the ground.
