MUCH ADO ABOUT MULBERRIES

Join in the search for London’s food history

The mulberry tree was introduced to London by the Romans and is often associated with medieval monasteries, where the fruit was grown for its perceived medicinal properties. By the 16th century, fashionable society was using mulberries to bring a taste of the East to dining tables, and some of the saplings they planted survive in private gardens and squares.

The Conservation Foundation has launched a project to uncover London’s mulberry heritage by recording the locations of these rare trees – if you know of one, you can register it on their website.
