  • A Red Mulberry tree can be either dioecious or monoecious. You can find both male and female flowers, which are catkins shaped as a pendulum, on the same tree. These flowers will usually appear in the late spring. (4) Flowers of a Red Mulberry are pale green in color and won’t exceed two inches in length. (3) The male flower is shown on top, the female on bottom.

  • Female flowers ripen together to produce a fruit that consist of small, round drupelets. These drupelets could be compared to a blackberry. (4) These fruits will appear in the summer and will range in size from one inch to one and a quarter inches. (3)
