Our mulberry tree is exploding. Just a few weeks ago my Pete was going to cut it back because it was all stalky, but the weather has warmed and it has now has a nice coverage of green leaves. It also has lots and lots of potential berries.
In amongst all of these green, furry, immature berries I found one completely ripe mulberry. It is bizarrely out of synch with its fellow berries, prematurely ripe. Perhaps a pioneer berry.
So I ate it! It was delicious and incredibly juicy.
Now I can’t wait for the rest of them to ripen!
