Where to get fresh persian Mulberries?

I really enjoy fresh fruit. I have read about but never had fresh in seasons persian mulberries.

My main questions are where do you buy them and for how much a pound.

Also are there any you pick places in Southern California?

Thanks a ton

  1. I see them fresh at farmers market for a very short season. Offhand, I cannot remember when the season is, but I'm guessing it is not now. It's not really berry season.

      When they are in season, Weiser Family Farms has them at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers' Market

        It's probably in June. I had it at Lucques for lunch, around mid June this year.

      2. They're usually in season in July, and sometimes sell out very early in the day. Based on my experience, I've always thought that Circle C Ranch has the best tasting ones. I also have a small tree in my backyard -- very easy to grow.

        1. Thanks for the help.

          How much do you pay a pound for them?

          Also are there any other markets or stores to get them?

          I'm up by Santa Clarita and I was hopeing there were places closer to me.

          Also arn't there any farms that sell them?

          Thanks a ton
