Organic White Mulberries are grown in the rich soil of Turkey's eastern high plains. Native to the region, most mulberry trees are hundreds of years old and most of the families that tend to them have done so for generations.
White Mulberries are a fast-growing small to medium tree that lives in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey. The leaves of the tree are intricately lobed and develop small mulberries between them. When the mulberries are ripe they are light and sweet in flavor and about 1-2.5 cm in length. The mulberries usually ripen sometime between July and August. A few weeks before this time, soft nets are placed around and underneath the tree and when the mulberries are ripe, they fall off the tree under their own weight into the nets placed around them. After enough mulberries have fallen off the tree they are collected, spread out under the sun and left to dry. When they are a perfect cross between chewy and sweet they are gathered once more, sent to be cleaned, checked for quality and packed.
