Information on the white mulberry. The information taken out of the Peterson Field Guides. Trees ranging from 20 to 60 feet in hight. As mention this tree did not produce the fruit, like other mulberry trees. This is a video from my old channel, AccordingtoAdam1826, that was closed due to uncertain circumstances. We are back on the new channel, Adam hall000, and posting all of the old videos. These videos are property of Adam Hall.
