White Railroad Mulberry – Local
We often are on the hunt for local fruits that have stood the trials of our climate. We heard often from local food foragers about the incredible mulberries of Railroad Square. Railroad square is a industrial park turned art district in downtown Tallahassee. It is situated next to the historical old railway depot. The lots that surround the district are filled with seedling mulberries. Most are black but there are a few white mulberries in the bunch. White mulberries are known for their super sweet flavor and are really good for making raisins out of. You really haven eaten good till you try mulberry raisin muffins. The White Railroad produces lots of plump, white mulberries that are over 1 inch long. The flavor is so sweet like vanilla ice cream. Fruit ripens in May. Zones 7-9.
