The color mulberry is displayed at right. This color is a representation of the color of mulberry jam or pie. This was a Crayola crayon color from 1958 to 2003.

The first recorded use of mulberry as a color name in English was in 1776.[1]

It has some similarities with the color raspberry, a shade of red also called mulberry in some countries of Latin America.
