Got a kilo of these (almost 2 pounds!) and asked the vendor if he had plucked them himself (I know how long it takes!); his reply was “no way, lady, we send 6 or 7 guys to do the job!”. These are my favorite berries; wish they were sold in the US as well. I remember someone telling me that their kid was having trouble digesting his food and the local doctor told her” Have him drink mulberry juice!”. Mulberries are full of fiber. The purple ones are the sweetest. Like candy.
