Succulent and resembling blackberries, only larger, mulberries grow on deciduous trees in warm, temperate and subtropical regions.

An ounce of mulberries weighs 28 grams and contains 12 calories. A cup of mulberries weighs 140 grams and contains 60 calories.

Mulberries belong to the Morus genus. More than 150 species names are on record, but only 10 to 16 of these are recognized by botanical experts. White mulberries (Morus alba), native to eastern and central China; red or American mulberries (Morus rubra), native to the Eastern United States; and black mulberries (Morus nigra), native to Western Asia, are produced in significant quantities.

Mulberries are rich in Vitamin C, with just 100 grams comprising 60.7 of the Reference Daily Intake, along with iron. Mulberries contain 88 percent water by weight.
