Mulberry

Botanical name: Moraceae

Mulberry
Botanical name: Moraceae

Species of Mulberry

Mulberries

Mulberries (Morus) are part of the fig family. The leaves of white mulberries are the food source for silkworms, so the cultivation of these plants has been vital for Chinese silk manufacturing for thousands of years. German legend, meanwhile, holds that the plant is a symbol of evil spirits and the devil uses its roots to polish his shoes.

Streblus

Maclura

Maclura grow as deciduous trees or shrubs with thorny branches. These plants contain a milky sap that causes skin irritation, and the fruits and leaves are poisonous. Some sources claim that the fruits repel insects such as cockroaches and spiders, and the wood was also traditionally used to make bows for archery and fences.

false mvule

False mvule is a monotypic genus. It is a large tree, growing to 25 - 40 m tall, with a trunk up to 40 cm diameter, often buttressed at the base, with pale grey bark. The leaves are elliptic to obovate. The African tree bears larger fruit than Asian and Polynesian populations. The edible fruit is a red or purple drupe 2 cm in diameter. False mvule has a remarkably wide distribution in tropical regions.

Trymatococcus

Trymatococcus is a genus of trees in the family Moraceae, native to South America.

Artocarpus

Artocarpus are made up of latex-producing trees and shrubs that also produce large and varied fruits. Several species have been domesticated for commercial fruit production. Many are also harvested locally for timber.

Cudrania

Cudrania are shrubs, woody vines, or small trees that have a wide distribution - they naturally grow in five continents except for Europe. These flowering plants have spines on their stems, particularly when they're still young. Their leaves are usually large.

Bleekrodea

Milicia

Broussonetia

Broussonetia are a genus of trees that have been utilized for various commercial uses. The fiber of the inner bark has traditionally been used to make textiles and paper in Asia, and its wood has also been used in making furniture and utensils. Paper mulberry (B. papyrifera) is the most common species, which is planted both as an ornamental tree and harvested for making barkcloth in the Pacific Islands.

Trophis

Trophis is a genus in the plant family Moraceae which includes about nine species, six of which are Neotropical and three which are Palaeotropical.

Brosimum

Brosimum is a genus of plants in the family Moraceae, native to tropical regions of the Americas.

Fatoua

Fatoua are herbs that tend to grow in disturbed areas, including gardens, agricultural fields, and greenhouses. They are covered in tiny hairs, making the plant feel sticky to the touch, and these plants reproduce by explosively shooting their tiny seeds into the air.

Dorstenia

Dorstenia species are predominantly herbaceous, succulent, or suffrutescent perennials. Only 10% exhibit the typical woody habit of the Moraceae. The leaves mostly are arranged in spirals and rosettes, and rarely as two-rowed leaves. Usually they are leathery, sometimes large, leaf-like and durable or sometimes small, awl-shaped and quickly falling off. The globular, tapered, or warty flowers are unisexual. Dorstenia species have drupe like fruits that are embedded in the receptable. The stone seeds are usually small with a minuscule endosperm. The species are fairly equally distributed between the Afrotropics and Neotropics.
Fig trees

Fig trees

Fig trees have been cultivated in many regions for their fruits, particularly the common fig, F. carica. Most of the species have edible fruits, although the common fig is the only one of commercial value. Fig trees are also important food sources for wildlife in the tropics, including monkeys, bats, and insects.
