This was taken before Christmas. I forgot to share it here. I went to school because my nephew was included to receive a Christmas pack. While waiting, I saw this mulberry tree and spotted its fruit. I wanted to pick it from the branch but the teacher was guarding the classroom near the tree.

Did you sneak a few mulberries before you left that day? I like mulberries. We had several trees of the black ones when I grew up on the farm. We always picked them and mom made them into pies.

I wanted to but there were lots of people that day so even before I left, people were passing by the tree. No chance. I want to try the Mulberry pie.

@jobelbojel Is the school on public land? If it is, then you have as much right to pick and eat mulberries as anyone else does. Mulberry pie is delicious but they aren't something you can buy in a grocery store. I guess mulberries don't ship well or something.

@DaddyEvil Yes, on public land. I was hesitant to pick it up. I have not heard about the pie before and now I know.

@jobelbojel it was cut since they have to build a concrete fence, that was around 3 decades ago

@LindaOHio I see. I think we rarely have blueberry here. And strawberry only grow in cold climate. There is a plantation here but it all the way up north, in the high lands of Benguet.

That is still unripe... It's still sour when you eat it red. It should be black... =) We have two mulberry trees at home.. Sometimes we eat the fruits but most of the fruits are eaten by birds.

The mulberries are red and very tempting to pick and eat. Are you so pick and eat it?

No I was not able to pick it up. But good thing, because according to Arbie on her comment, red is unripe.

@jobelbojel Oh I see, so it turns out that if it is red, the mulberry fruit is not ripe

I am not sure here. When I took this photo, I only saw this fruit, or maybe the ripe ones were already harvested.

@jobelbojel May be it was left on the tree. Right now it's not strawberry season, but I found two in my garden.

@jobelbojel That was my thinking but then I thought perhaps some varieties stay red. Green apples aren't necessarily 'unripe', are they? lol
