  1. Mulberry, Mulberry treenoun

    morus, Lat. The mulberry tree hath large, rough, roundish leaves; the male flowers, or katkins, which have a calyx consisting of four leaves, are sometimes produced upon separate trees, at other times at remote distances from the fruit on the same tree: the fruit is composed of several protuberances, to each of which adhere four small leaves; the seeds are roundish, growing singly in each protuberance; it is planted for the delicacy of the fruit. The white mulberry is commonly cultivated for its leaves to feed silkworms, in France and Italy, though the Persians always make use of the common black mulberry for that purpose. Philip Miller

    Etymology: morberig , Saxon;

    Morton, archbishop of Canterbury, was content to use mor upon a tun; and sometimes a mulberry tree, called morus in Latin, out of a tun. William Camden, Remains.

    That will not hold the handling. William Shakespeare, Coriolanus.
