Ok,

I will not miss the season this year.

I would like to know where to get fresh persian mulberries.

Also how much are they a pound.

Thank you

I'm in the Santa Clarita area.

      LA Times contributing food editor David Karp (aka The Fruit Detective) talked about Persian mulberries as well.

      If it's a produce article by David, then you should take his advice by all means. The Santa Monica FM on Arizona usually has at least a couple of vendors that offer Persian mulberries. As Kevin mentioned, they're not cheap, usually sold in the smaller clamshell containers for $7-10 per, and are very perishable.

        I almost forgot - I heard on KCRW's Good Food that Pakistani mulberries are also available. I haven't tried these but they may be worth seeking out as well.

          The season for the Pak/Afghan mulberries is over. The Persian is peaking now.

            They are also grossly inferior to the Persian mulberries.

              Comparing apples to oranges.

              It also depends if you're eating them off a tree.
