Wild-Crafted White Mulberries
: Our wild-crafted, certified organic mulberries are from natural, secluded and organically certified reserve in Uzbekistan, which lies in Central Asia along the famous Silk Road. The mulberry trees are huge old specimens of the rare Morus Alba variety and are commonly called White Mulberries, even though they are golden in color. Their advanced age allows them to produce prolifically. In fact, they are manually harvested 3 times each season, yielding about 500 kilos of mulberries per tree. The berries are harvested by shaking ripe berries from the tree into nets. The mulberries are then carefully selected for premium quality and sun dried to optimize natural sweetness. They are hand sorted, one by one, to ensure only the finest of the bunch make it into our bags. We have specifically chosen these White Mulberries for their ancient resonance and their magnificent social and environmental benefits. They simply taste better - chewier, sweeter, and more unique in coloration. History of the Mulberry

The berries themselves were a celebrated food by humans, traded and savored for their heavenly sweetness.Health Benefits
