The man with the best mulberries

On the street outside the old town in Kabul, this man were selling his mulberries.

I feel like I slowly get a hook on what good mulberries are, and this man offered some of the best ones I ever tried.

I was introduced to mulberries about 1 years ago, when I traded Afghan mulberries for the first time. Since then no mulberry have tasted as good as the ones from Afghanistan. I did not even find the really good ones in Istanbul! They all had a light dusty undertone.

But not this mans mulberries. They had a darker color than these ones I got delivered with the German foreign minister’s airplane last April. The mulberry can show up in colors like red, white or black.

I bought 2 kg with me home (taking up about 1/5th of my suitcase).
