Mulberry 'Chelsea' (King James)
The late Robert Garner named this Black Mulberry variety 'Chelsea' after rescuing the original plant, reputedly planted by King James, from the Chelsea Physic Garden when it was damaged by bombs during WWII.
Small, long-lived wide spreading tree. Fruits black/red. Excellent quality. A rich history back to King James 1. Pick in August.
Amazingly delicious fruit.
