Goumi (unknown) is showing black around the edges. It was turning yellow last weekend so I added Espoma Iron Tone and a pinch of SEA-90.   Maybe added too much?

That’s an odd looking Goumi.

It looks a lot like mulberry.


I wonder if the edges that were yellow died back and are now dead? Are the leaves crunchy or dry where the black is?

agreed, that looks like mulberry. goumis have simple toothless leaves.

That is not goumi based on what I have identified and eaten at the arboretum near me, what I have outside and a quick google search of goumi leaf.

Based on those leaves that you posted, if its a fruit tree it would be mulberry but it could also just be a "weed plant".


As for you possible 'over-feeding' the plants. I would flush out the soil by submerging the pot into a huge bucket. The salts will 'dissolve evenly' between the pot and bucket of water, thus lowering the concentration. You can then throw away the bucket of water with all its dissolved salt. If needed you can repeat this process a few times.

Sorry I was wrong.  Had my Goumi and Mulberry mixed up.  Good to have labels.
I think i will repot these into clean growers mix and put them in a humidity chamber to see if they recover.

If it is mulberry, you might find that you like mulberries better than goumis. There is a chance it’s a male mulberry and wont fruit. I’m not sure what the odds are. Does anyone know what percent of mulberries are male only? I have several that came up in my yard. I’m going to leave them all until at least one fruits. I wonder if I need a male tree too?  There must be some in the area.

Was this plant grown from seed? I have had mulberries come up in pots several times without planting them. They make millions of seeds and birds spread them everywhere.

I got them as cuttings and started them in a humidity chamber with a heat mat.
