Citrus trees...do not like mulch.
Mango and Avocado...like mulch, but not too close to the trunk.
Bananas and berries...LOVE mulch. You can mulch every inch...they will love you for it.
Herbs and veggies...I mulch just enough to keep dirt from splashing up onto the plants. They seem to be grateful for it.
Keep in mind that I have only used two mulches. One is the red wood chips that most commercial properties around here use around their trees for appearance..and most recently I tried Cypress wood mulch. It doesn't have the look appeal that the red mulch does, but seems to be better for the soil.

I just bought some kind of black decorative mulch. I hope this is okay to use on my berries and roses.
