תפוצה טבעית: דרום סין

תולעי המשי, מקור בד המשי, ניזונות מעליו של עץ זה. כל עצי התות שאפשר לראות מכאן הם זכריים,ללא פירות. לזן הגנני הזה מבנה ענפים מיוחד.

[The second face of the cube]
White Mulberry
Morus alba

Natural range: Southern China

Silk moth caterpillars, whose cocoons give us silk cloth, eat this species’ leaves. All the mulberry trees that you can see from here are males; thus they produce no fruits. This special garden variety features branches of unusual shape.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
כל העצים שלפניך הם שיבוטים: הם בעלי גנים זהים, כמו תאומים זהים. האם הם גם נראים זהים?

[a question]
All the mulberry trees you see from here are clones - they have exactly the same genes, like identical twins. Do they look identical?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
הדמיון בין עצי תות אלו נובע מזהות החומר התורשתי. השוני יכול לנבוע מתנאים סביבתיים שונים, כגון: שמש, צל, מים, גיזום ע"י גננים.

[The Answer to the question]
Any similarities you find among these mulberry trees no doubt come from their genes. Differences can come from different conditions of environment - sunlight, shade, water, pruning by gardeners, etc.
