More About Morus rubra:

Mulberry trees are either dioecious or monoecious, and sometimes will change from one sex to another. The flowers are held on short catkins that appear in the axils of the current season's growth and on spurs on older wood. They are wind pollinated and some cultivars will set fruit without any pollination. Cross-pollination is not necessary.
