Neutral talbotecolandcare On Jul 9, 2013, talbotecolandcare from Mashpee, MA wrote:

The true Morus alba 'Chaparral' is a male plant, so it does not produce fruit. This is a blessing, as the fruits (while tasty) stain badly AND the plant is an invasive species in many parts of the United States. Being a male clone, however, it makes an interesting small tree with the invasive issues.

Bought this from Lowe's in March of 2006 and it's beautiful and doing very well. Needs to be covered for late Spring freezes. It states on the tag that it "...flowers in March and April are yellow green. Birds love the blackberry size fruit." I have seen the flowers every year but they have never turned into fruit.
