About Shahtoot

This product does not have flowers and fruits at the time of shipping. Afterward, the plant will bloom and have lovely fruits.

Morus is a genus of flowering plants in the family Moraceae, and it is a small deciduous fast-growing tree commonly known as mulberries, growing wild and under cultivation in many temperate regions of India. The plant has three main species by the color of its fruits: white, red, and black mulberry. The leaves are simple and alternately arranged, and often lobed and serrated on the margin. Immature fruits are white, green, or pale yellow.

The fruit turns from pink to red while ripening, then dark purple or black, and has a sweet flavor when fully ripe. The plants are usually pruned once a year during the monsoon season to a height of 1.5–1.8 m (5–6 ft) and allowed to grow with a maximum of 8–10 shoots at the crown. Fruits are a good source of iron, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus. Mulberry plants are good shade-giving in the garden.

Staking mulberry trees in the early years will prevent wind rock, leading to good root development. Shahtoot responds to applied water and nutrients. Shahtoot can be pruned during winter dormancy or rainy season.
