Grows there a mulberry that's in any way bush-like and not what any
random person would immediately identify as a "tree"? IMO, the
mulberries from Granddad's tree were absolutely inedible - well, maybe
not "absolutely," since there are millions of people who willingly eat
rhubarb. So, perhaps the edible variety of mulberry does grow on
