Gardeners' Notes:

Elongated fruits are sweet and juicy. Easy to grow.

Based on mail order pictures of very large fruit, it's tempting to order "Pakistan". The fruit isn't bad, but it's nowhere near as ambrosial as the fruit you'll get from a Morus nigra. One advantage Pakistan has over a Morus nigra, though, is that the fruit comes off the tree easily. They have long stems. Morus nigra fruit is more directly attached to the tree so you nearly always break a berry cell while harvesting. This means that Pakistan would be an easier fruit to bring to market, or even to store at home for a week in the fridge.

The leaves are large, glossy, and more decorative than a Morus nigra, too.

Really, the only reason my rating is "neutral" rather than "positive" is because I am not bowled over by the flavor. Others might prefer it.

Long (up to 5" long) burgundy/black colored fruits. As the name implies, this tree comes from Pakistan. Great for zones 6-10.
