This tree has been near our garage since we moved here, almost nine years ago. At first it was more like a bush. When it started getting taller, Lee trimmed it every year. This is the first year he has seen mulberries on it. Of course, I googled mulberry bush/tree and they black and white ones grow on trees. They are from Eastern Asia. I didn't taste any of them. We also discovered that lady bugs are very plentiful on the branches.
