For me, this shrubby tree at 6'+ and about 7 years old IS fruiting for the first time I have noticed. This may possibly be due to the fact that I also have standard Mulberry tree in my backyard that may have acted as the pollinator. See my posted photos above.

Just Fruits and Exotics offers this description: "Japanese variety of Morus alba whose name means king or royalty. The leaves look like a living topographic map. The area between minor veins is distorted, so the leaf surface is crinkled or raised. Great yellow fall color. Non-fruiting. Zones 5-9."
