  • Tradition berry tree steeped in history
  • Self-fertile

Grow your own mulberry tree and enjoy picking delicious loganberry-like fruit every year, only these are so much richer.

Your tree comes from a renowned established tree planted in London's Chelsea Physic Garden under order from King James I. Although the tree died from damage in World War II, cuttings were taken in time to enable the line to carry on. Some of the cuttings were planted by Churchill at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire and also to mark the Queen's coronation.
