Mulberry Street

I live a few steps from the corner of Mulberry & W. 4th Streets.  But every street becomes MULBERRY when the ripe juicy fruit covers sidewalks and driveways.  Don't hesitate to reach up into those low hanging branches and pluck a handful of berries.  They're so sweet and there're plenty for you, me, the birds and the groundhogs!

According to "Mulberries are acutally a good source of raw food protein, a rarity in the fruit kingdom. They are also a good source of magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, iron, calcium, vitamin C, and fiber. One of the mulberry's greatest health assets is it's high concentration of resveratrol, an antioxidant currently being studied for its effects on heart health."
