In our region we find black, red and white varieties, while there are about one hundred in the world.
Of all the varieties, the most aromatic is black mulberry.
This fruit grows on a deciduous tree of the same name from the Morus family, whose leaves are known as the food of mulberry silk.

Once upon a time in the Neretva valley, mulberry tree was much appreciated for making barrels.
The mulberry is also grown to obtain silk from the mulberry silk.
