Technically, her silkworms do not live in mulberry trees, but my grandmother picked the leaves from the tree and feed them at home. Still the sight of those worms in the green leaves damaged me permanently that only the single leaf of mulberry tree makes my skin crawl.
But then… it’s the entirely different story with mulberry. I love mulberry. I had never visited my grandmother’s mulberry plantation but I regularly indulged in juicy mulberries she sent me. Those beautiful deep red and black gems, basketful of them, all vanished into my mouth, a handful after a handful. These pretty berries are not just tasted good, but they’re packed with antioxidant agent, vitamins, minerals and very low in calories.
