Can you please tell me what is that tree. I grew up in Central Europe (Poland to be specific) and i just don't know.

I love those trees.

Not only are they

1. fairly attractive and

2. very vigorous, even weedy, and

3. produce huge quantities of edible fruit, they also

4. produce attractive, strong wood for burning or building.


What else could you want in a tree?

Also provides high quality/ high protein tree fodder - good for all animals.

So we ate some of the berries today and they are really good. I'll be fun to watch the kids munch on them.

My wife said that she'd seen mulberry trees back in Poland but the fruits were white there.
 
I'm sure glad that he's gone. Now I can read this tiny ad in peace!
