Frozen Pakistan Mulberries

Quantity: 3 pack - ships frozen

Pre-order expected to ship June 2022.

Ships frozen with UPS Next Day Air shipping included.

Our Pakistan mulberries, considered a superfood due to their high antioxidant content, have an aromatic flavor reminiscent of blackberry or boysenberry with a more earthy sweetness. Highly delicate and perishable, our mulberries are frozen immediately after harvest. Freezing does not dilute their flavor so you can enjoy this unique fruit from anywhere in the US.  Due to their high sugar content, mulberries don’t clump like other frozen fruits, so you can enjoy each berry on its own. Excellent straight out of the bag for a cool snack during the summer heat, amazing for baking and cooking, or perfect in your superfood smoothie. You can also find our fresh mulberries at our Bay Area Farmer’s Markets, through our CSA program, and at select Bay Area retailers.

What Are They?  Mulberries grow on trees, so botanically speaking they are not classified as a berry. They are considered a multiple fruit, a fruit that develops from many tiny flowers. However, they share the fragility, high flavor, and nutritional excellence characteristic of cane fruits. 

Origins/History: Mulberries have been cultivated and cherished for thousands of years. There are three primary cultivars, white, red, and black, each with its own history. 

The cultivation of the white mulberry was instrumental in building China’s silk trade. ​​According to legend, over 5,000 years ago, princess Xi Lingshi discovered that a cocoon could be unraveled to produce a thread when one dropped into her tea while sitting under a mulberry tree. The black mulberry is thought to have originated in the mountainous regions of Persia and Mesopotamia. Ancient civilizations cultivated the trees for their sweet and succulent fruits. Mulberries were brought to Britain by the Romans and were used for medicinal purposes. It wasn’t until the Tudor era that mulberries were coveted across Europe for their fruit. The red mulberry is native to North America and was used by indigenous people for medicine and was baked into bread and cakes. The black mulberry, which is the cultivar we grow, was brought to the United States in the 1700s. 

Despite these fruits’ ancient history, you’d be hard-pressed to find them at the grocery store or even a farmer’s market due to their extremely delicate nature. We are among the first commercial growers to bring fresh mulberries to the market in the United States. You can find our fresh mulberries at our Bay Area Farmer’s Markets, through our CSA program, and at select Bay Area retailers.
