Shangri-La better catch up!


The difference on the fruit production between the Shangri-La and Geraldi mulberries is incredible.

Very nice things happening around your place. I did get outside in the rain and pull weeds after all, thanks for the kick in the pants! Then I did also take a long bath and my husband treated me to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant!!

Well I know what variety of mulberry I am interested in. It seems that nearly all 'dwarf' fruits are precocious but this seems precocious and early. I wonder how hardy it is (off to find out).

Hi OG...

I went to the site where I bought mine

(http://www.whitmanfarms.com/Product.asp?CategoryID=15&ItemID=554)

but they did not have that info...I gotta walk out of the house now but check out the correct name on the link above...if you can't find the info I'll help you when I come back.

Later!

OG...

I am back...googled 'Gerardi hardy to zone..." and nothing comes up, looked it up other ways too but no luck.

My suggestion would be to email Lucile Whitman -->
lucile@whitmanfarms.com

She is SUPER NICE and I am sure she can dig that info up for you. Also, you may want to remind her to post that info on her site for the future reference of possible customers...just a thought :-)

I tell you, thus far, Gerardi is definitely outperforming its much larger cousin Shangri-La by about 95%!
