Mulberry trees near Georgetown

Just to give a little context to today’s mulberry Instagram post, we recently happened upon a grove of mulberry trees off of P Street near Georgetown. I’m assuming these are widely known to Washington, D.C., locals, but seeing as how we’re new to the area, the discovery got me Googling.

Chiefly, I wanted to share this Washington Post story from 2010 about the significance of mulberries to immigrants in the area. I will admit to falling into the category of people who are naturally hesitant to eat berries found out in the wild, but I think I’m going to loosen up a bit after reading up on how much people enjoy them.
