Morus nigra
Morus Mo"rus, n. [L., mulberry tree. See {Mulberry}.] (Bot.) A genus of trees, some species of which produce edible fruit; the mulberry. See {Mulberry}. [1913 Webster]


{Morus alba} is the white mulberry, a native of India or China, the leaves of which are extensively used for feeding silkworms, for which it furnishes the chief food.

{Morus multicaulis}, the many-stemmed or Chinese mulberry, is only a form of white mulberry, preferred on account of its more abundant leaves.

{Morus nigra}, the black mulberry, produces a dark-colored fruit, of an agreeable flavor. [1913 Webster]
