Morus alba fruitless cultiwars

Family: Moraceae

The non-native White Mulberry is very similar to the native Red Mulberry (Morus rubra L.), but may be distinguished by the leaves. White Mulberry is found throughout the United States where it invades old fields, urban lots, roadsides, forest edges, and other disturbed areas. It poses an ecological threat by displacing native species. White Mulberry is native to Asia and was introduced in colonial times as a food source for silkworms.
