Crataegus aestivalis

Mayhaw

Mayhaw is a small rather thorny deciduous tree with small leaves and abundant white flowers in very early spring.  These are followed by attractive cranberry size red fruits in May.  These fruits yield the Deep South's famous Mayhaw jelly. Mayhaw typically grows in low grounds that are sometimes flooded but can be grown very well on upland sites.  It is cultivated for it's fruit but makes an ornamental and useful small tree. Native to southern U.S.
