This specific variety of mulberry is fruitless because it is entirely male. Silkworms naturally feed on this species, so in the past it has been grown for use in the silkworm industry. However, in North America, silkworms have not proven to be economically beneficial and mulberry fruit does not keep long enough for commercial use. Because of this, the majority of mulberry species in North America are fruitless.
