Urban Berry Picking: Mulberries

Every spring in a secret undisclosed location in downtown Kansas City…

…when the pavement turns purple…

…and the concrete is covered with fallen fruit…

…it’s time to pick mulberries.

Ripe berries are dark, and will stain your clothes and fingers…

…but it’s worth it.

Leave the unripened fruit on the tree, it will be ready in a few days.

I just eat them, stem and all.

Mulberries have a long history in this area and even though the Silkville, KS project eventually failed, tasty berries still appear every spring in the most unlikely of places.

Find yours and enjoy!
