Black Mulberry, is a species of flowering plant in the family Moraceae, native to southwestern Asia, where it has been cultivated for so long that its precise natural range is unknown.

Morus nigra is a deciduous tree growing to 12?m (39?ft) tall by 15?m (49?ft) broad. The leaves are 10?20?cm (4?8?in) long by 6?10?cm (2?4?in) broad – up to 23?cm (9?in) long on vigorous shoots, downy on the underside, the upper surface rough with very short, stiff hairs.

The edible fruit is dark purple, almost black, when ripe, 2?3 centimetres (0.8?1.2?in) long, a compound cluster of several small drupes; it is richly flavoured, similar to the red mulberry (Morus rubra) but unlike the more insipid fruit of the white mulberry (Morus alba).
