Does anyone grow mulberries in really cold zones? I'm looking for a northern seed source of any kind of mulberry. I know of a single specimen here in Saskatoon, but have never seen any fruit on it, probably a male and lonely. I remember seeing one in Morden manitoba many moons ago, but have no contacts out that way... I'd be willing to try something from Montana or North Dakota, perhaps we could exchange some seed? I have some hardier stuff to trade...Thanks all!

Northrop mulberry is said to be cold hardy in zone 3, though probably not available in Canada.

Would love to find a mulberry as well. Am from south central SK, Zone 3(possibly trending to 4). North central Minnesota would also be a potential area to receive seed from.

Chicago Illinois - not sure if that is 'north' enough. Gets pretty cold there, that is why I left. But weeping mulberries are very common there.

Thanks for the replies! I will do a search tonight for seed of that speices and see what I can come up with. Sounds like these could be a solid zone 4 for sure. I bet one of the bigger nurseries in Winnipeg might carry larger trees possibly.

Denis - Maybe we could do a trade if you have/want some permaculturesque material? Are you on a farm or in town? I have a bag of Manchurian Walnuts that needs to get in the ground, as well as some sugar maple, both from Saskatoon trees. I have some different stuff, if there's anything you're looking for! I'm always looking!
