Mulberry bushes in Bend?
Hello: I live in downtown Bend and would love to go some dwarf mulberry trees to harvest the fruit for cooking. Is this possible? If, so do you have a variety you recommend? Any other tips? Many thanks.

This plant is considered invasive in some states so has lost some popularity. Here is some additional information on this plant:
