MULBERRY. They are specially raised with the help of well-grown saplings 8-10 months old of any of the varieties recommended for rain -fed areas like S-13 (for red loamy soil) or S-34 (black cotton soil) which are tolerant to drought or soil-moisture stress conditions. Usually, the plantation is raised and in block formation with a spacing of 6 feet x 6 feet, or 8 feet x 8 feet, as plant to plant and row to row distance. The plants are usually pruned once a year during the monsoon season (July - August) to a height of 5-6 feet and allowed to grow with a maximum of 8-10 shoots at the crown. The leaves are harvested 3-4 times a year by a leaf picking method [clarification needed] under rain-fed or semi-arid conditions, depending on the monsoon.

Anthocyanins are responsible for the attractive colors of fresh plant foods, producing colors such as orange, red, purple, black, and blue. They are water-soluble and easily extractable.
