Until recently mulberries were not available commercially but grew wild on trees. Technically they are a fruit, not a berry. The black mulberry is quite bland to taste and sour if eaten unripe. Eaten raw or made into jam. Mulberries are now grown in Queensland and come into season mid September.
In Season: Spring Summer
Find mulberries wild on trees. As they are highly perishable they are not grown commercially. Pick ripe fruit or gather ripe fruit from the ground. Avoid over-ripe yeasty-smelling fruit.
Unripe mulberries will ripen over a couple of days. Ripe berries will keep refrigerated for no more than a few days.
Tips & Tricks:
If anyone has a washing tip to remove a mulberry juice stain from clothing - write in and we can add it to this section.
Wash mulberries very gently and quickly. Dry thoroughly. Fill a colander or sieve with the berries and dip it into a sink filled with water. Drain the water and then dry the fruit on a flat tray lined with absorbent paper - not a tea towel or it will stain.
