they are good, these small ones I see on the river all the time and we call them the wild mulberries. our trees at home are like 20 feet tall the leaves are about 5 times as big as these and the fruit is abount 1"to 1 1/2" long and twice as big around. they make a fine jelly and doobie

Those look like native or wild mullberries to me. "Domesticated" mulberries are larger if I remember right and not so much stem--I picked some for a neighbor "on the halves" in his backyard when I was a teenager. afaik, I don't have any one my property but my sister has several, which never produced much, until the season after 2011's drought and they made berries in droves. Seems like everything did much better right after that drought. Lots and lots of muscadines too.

They make wonderful wine. Wish that we had some mulberry trees.
