Sixteen Fructus Mori samples of different origins and habitats were compared for quality difference according to their characteristic HPLC profiles and subjected to hierarchical cluster analysis. Besides, the optimal chromatographic conditions were discussed. A low similarity in HPLC profile and remarkable differences in content and chemical composition were observed among the 16 samples. There was no obvious correlation between quality and habitat of Fructus Mori. Samples from half-bred mulberry varieties displayed larger peak area than those stipulated in the Chinese pharmacopoeia. Commercial Fructus Mori products differed greatly in quality. All these results reveal that Fructus Mori quality is closely associated with mulberry variety, processing and storage.

Key words: Fructus Mori, origin, habitat, HPLC, hierarchical cluster analysis
