Mulberry

I grew up in Brasil where fruits grow abundantly. In my little town, Casa Branca, one could find these trees on just about every corner. Across from my house, there was an empty lot with lots of such trees and I remember going there after school to feast on these delicious red/purple yummies.

After moving to the US,  I couldn’t find mulberries, which by the way, are called AMORA in Portuguese.
After many years living here, I found the tree in the San Diego vicinity, on a exotic fruit farm, recommended by  rawmodel.com.
The rest is history.
