Referred to in antiquity as the wisest of trees, the mulberry is one of the last trees to blossom in spring, postponing its growth until conditions are at their most favourable. As a result of its judicious timing, the tree was dedicated to the Roman Goddess of wisdom, Minerva, and it is thought that its generic name – Morus – derives from the latin word mora, meaning delay.

Mulberry trees have been planted for reasons other than their fruit, most notably in China, where the leafy foliage has been used as silkworm fodder for centuries. First discovered around 27BCE, silk manufacture remained a closely guarded secret under Imperial law; though several legends have described the smuggling of mulberry seeds to other parts of Asia.
