Buying Mulberries

Look for:
mulberries that are plump and red, purple or black in color, unless purchasing the white mulberry from East Asia.

avoid mulberries that are white, green or pale yellow, as that is a sign they are not mature, (unless they are white mulberries). Avoid mulberries that are soft and bleeding as they spoil easily.

Seasonality: White and red are available in late spring; black mulberries are available in summer

Storing Mulberries

Refrigerate unwashed mulberries in a sealed plastic bag up to 1 week.

Preparing Mulberries

Place berries in a bowl of cold water, then gently pat dry. Pinch off the stem before use.
