I am in Beirut for a few weeks and it is the season now for toot. Juicy and sweet! What a delight!


In addition, we are going to be drinking sharab el-toot (mulberry juice), homemade by various friends and relatives. Can’t wait!

    I like toot so much that I planted a mullberry (toot) tree in my garden.we had also the (dood Kaz) silk worm that feed on the leaves. What i miss is the sharab el toot!

      It is great that you planted a mulberry tree in your garden. Which area do you live in? I too adore sharab el-toot, and other than the one that is given to me from Lebanon I can’t seem to find a good sharab el-toot anymore! The syrup that is available says “toot”, but in reality it is blackberry syrup. We have a toot tree in our home in the Choof area at 900m altitude.

    Hello Joummana,
    I live in a place where during winter I put the food in the fridge to keep it warm! 😉
    I live in Ontario.

      That’s funny! I live in a place where 105F is considered not too hot. Well, how is your mulberry tree doing? I am so mad I did not take the sharab el-toot back to Texas with me! I can’t find the equivalent here, and I miss it!
