Our organic dried mulberries are organically grown in the eastern regions of Turkey specifically by our contracted farmers.
The Mulberry tree is thought to have originated in China. It is found all along the route of the famous Silk Road as merchants unwittingly spread the seeds during their travels and allowed the trees to grow. What was not realised at that time, as it was kept a secret for many years, is that the Mulberry tree is the sole source of food for the Silkworm.
Mulberries are a super food all in themselves as the trees need very little maintenance to grow and produce a vast amount of fruit. Mulberry trees bursting with fruit are a familiar sight in most Turkish towns.
