Actor Siddharth’s Tweet Opens Up Mulberry Diaries For Us And We Are Craving Them Now


When did we last have fresh white, red or black mulberries? Garden-fresh mulberries are now a tale of the past, at least in urban areas. Gone are the days when we could pluck them off a neighbourhood tree and pop it into our mouths during a lazy stroll. Now, it’s an expensive fruit that comes in packets. But the nostalgia has stayed. Actor Siddharth recently quote-tweeted about the dark red fruit and reminisced his school days. Siddharth’s quote tweet showed a picture of juicy mulberries being sold at a roadside stall in Afghanistan.

The original tweet said, “Shatoot. What do you call it?” Siddharth wrote, “Mulberry? Used to get it off a tree in my school in Delhi. Called Shahtoot there too.”

A flood of reactions followed his tweet. Many users commented about their memories of mulberries.

One user wrote that as a kid they “never used to buy this”, but always plucked it from trees.

Another wrote, “How times have changed. Used to pluck and eat or waste it. Now, it’s coming in boxes.”

A third user felt it was unfortunate that “people in Delhi NCR region don’t know its value”, as “most of it goes waste falling on roads”.

A user commented on the reduction in mulberry trees in North India, and wondered “why”.

A few users also put down the regional names for this fruit.
