In Asia, mulberries play an important role in silkworm breeding.
With us, they are a fancy ingredient for cereals and desserts.
The colors of the mulberry can be seen.
There are white, red and black mulberries.
They differ in aroma from each other.
Mulberry - the power fruit
We offer you here our all-natural, untreated, dried mulberries.
In Portuguese, we call them Amoreira.
Amoreiras is very sweet and reminiscent of the taste of raisins.
They can be used as a substitute for sugar.
Amoreiras is an excellent choice for sweetening tea.
Dried mulberries are great as a snack in between.
The loose mulberries are especially good in muesli or as a cake topping.
They are interesting fruity taste-givers.
Therefore, they are a perfectly suitable ingredient for your fruit salads.
Mulberry cultivation worldwide
Originally, some mulberry species come from Asia and others from North America.
In Asia, the mulberries are cultivated for the silkworm breeding.
In Europe, the Romans were among the first to use the trees.
In Germany, the decorative trees are rarely found.
Occasionally they grow in parks and avenues.
However, they still thrive better in warmer regions.
The mulberry colors are black, red, white.
Mulberry trees are a genus of flowering plants of the mulberry family.
In the botanical sense, the berries are stone fruit bandages.
Many small drupes emerge from a flower and seem to form a fruit together.
The berries ripen one after the other so that they can only be harvested gradually, but not all at once.
The fruits are reminiscent of the shape of elongated raspberries or blackberries.
In Europe, three species are common today.
The white mulberry, Latin Morus alba
The black mulberry, Latin Morus nigra
The red mulberry, Latin Morus rubra.
The trees or shrubs reach stature heights from 6 to 15 meters.
The knotty branches form a fairly compact crown.
The trees are deciduous, so lose their foliage before winter.
Leaves and flowers grow at the same time from April.
The leaves of the white mulberry serve as food for the caterpillars of the silk moth.
The color makes the difference
Black and red mulberries much more suitable for consumption than the white ones are.
They are often so soft when harvested that their juice comes out and the harvester's hands turn red.
Fully ripe-harvested a pleasure.
The best harvest season is the beginning of August to the end of September. In Germany, however, fresh mulberries are rarely available.
The fruits are too delicate to transport longer distances.
Imported goods are therefore mostly in dried or processed form.
The appearance of dried mulberries
By drying, the mulberries become firmer.
In addition, they look rather glassy.
The color changes into brownish and yellow tones.
Tips for preparation
For example, dried mulberries can be used, as cereals, in yogurt or for baking.
The correct storage method
Mulberries are very sensitive.
Please store the dried mulberries cool and above all in a dry environment.
