I have cuttings of a morus nigra, this one is different from the typical persian ones I see around.

The tree has a strong weeping habit, but curls up once it weeps down, giving a somewhat curly growth.

The fruit are delicious, very similar to blue raspberry candy. The tree is compact, with a non-spreading canopy.

It is extremely low chill, some branches still have leaves, while others are breaking bud.

I have a great many cuttings.

I have had success rooting the persian variety like you would a fig. I assume these will be similar to persian and root better than the panache fig cuttings.

I will ship ASAP, I don't need piles of these.

A small pile was shipped yesterday, but there is still much more if anyone is interested.

Oh and the persian ones have rooted, but the panache figs that have leaves on them made a surprise growth spurt.

Nice fig. Do you wrap the cutting instead of using a humidity dome?

I simply wrapped most of it in parafilm, and left the buds exposed. No dome was used, left them on top of the fridge where it is warm.

That looks great.. Should easily be at least 4 or 5 feet tall by the end of summer... figs like plenty of fertilizer and water and will grow in response to it! :D Good job!

OOlie, do you still have Black Mulberry cuttings that might be viable?

No, They are too dessicated.

During the second phase they have been doing quite poorly due to lack of humidity above soil level. The humidity dome is very important.
