OK guys and gals. I tried to resist my passion, but just can't. Also because what is hugely important for me, can be a breeze for the person who helps me. Which is why I was bold enough to post this request.
So, what's the thing? The thing is that I am not only a proud member of this great community (owning Piaggio MP3 and two Aprilia Scarabeos, 50 and 500cc), but also a gardener, just as many of you. And being a curious person, I try growing plants which aren't common for our zone (which is Russia, South Ural, not too much far from the place where Ural motorcycle is made, USDA 4 zone)
Sooo, I found possible to grow mulberries. I've collected a nice collection of common mulberries, but now I need two more rarely available things.
First of all, I need Pakistani mulberry, Morus macroura. Those have long (up to 4 inch/10cm) berries, black or white, not so juicy, but very sweet and unusual. Those can be found in wild in Pakistan and around, but is also grown in lots of USA properties and backyards
Next, I need native American red mulberry, which is Morus rubra. It is rare enough because of hybridisation with Asian Morus alba, but still is available at some enthusiasts in USA and Canada.
Both are listed at ebay, but almost no sellers ship to Russia. And who do, often send fake items (like regular white mulberry twigs and seeds).
So I am begging to people who understands my passion to gardening and specifically mulberries: could you please sell to me some berries with seeds and some twigs from your plants? If anyone feels being able to help, please PM me, we'll discuss. Indeed I am not trying to get anything for free, I will pay all expenses and bring some profit There's no problem with customs by now, if that matters.
Indeed I am hightly interested also in other species and varieties. So if anyone wants to help and has other mulberries, I'd be happy to discuss them too.
I really, really do hope to find some overseas friend who can support my passion. So can't wait to see some PM.
Oh, forgot to mention. My name is Boris, glad to meet you
