Mulberry Picking at the Vicarage

Over 500 years old, our listed mulberry tree at the Vicarage

Over 500 years old, our listed mulberry tree at the Vicarage

The mulberries are ready!

The first crop is ripe for picking and they are delicious. If you have not eaten a mulberry, do not miss this opportunity. They look and taste rather like a blackberry (but the flavour is unique and delicious).

Here is what to do: Come to the Vicarage on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday morning between 10.00 am and midday. Just tell the Office what you are doing. Wear old clothes/gloves. Mulberries bleed profusely (do not be put off by this!) and bring a container and fill it. If you can bring a small step ladder – it would help. Take them home and try them in a crumble, or with cream, or make mulberry jam. Enjoy.

The tree is listed and is over 500 years old.
