Hello,

I have been trying to figure out the easiest animal protein source to raise in hawaii. I am on 2 acres in the jungle...not much soil. It does not seem like it would be too super hard to achieve this goal with a year around growing season..  Mulberry trees grow good here all year round , and I read the temp is right for silkworms. They have a diet of only mulberry leaves.
.I am trying to figure out how practical it would be to raise silkworms as a staple protein source with no external feed inputs . A llot of other insects like grain as food which I do not want to have to  buy or raise .
I have no experience though with silkworms..  I don't know how practical it would be to raise enough for a significant amount of dietary protein.  I you guess you would just harvest mulberry leaves every day and feed them to the worms?  I inow the pupae are sold as a delicacy. Anyone know more about silkworms for food and if its practical?

Take care
Jason
