I was walking with Ocean through Haid Park here in Senjak. We noticed these black berries on the ground. I looked up but couldn’t see any of the berries in the tree. As we continued on our walk, we then found more berries on the ground. This time I looked up and saw them in the tree.
The mulberry tree is quite big. There were several in Haid Park and I’ll be on the lookout to see more in the city. The genus, Morus has 10-16 species found in warm temperate and subtropical regions around the world. They are members of the Moraceae (Fig) Family. All Moraceae can be identified by a white latex.
