Crataegus aestivalis (Eastern Mayhaw) adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions; bears tasty fruit; larval food for the beautiful Red-spotted purple butterfly. Fruit ripens in the month of May and is very popular for jelly-making.
Photo: taken 4/27/2016 This tree is on our farm in a dry field, so water is not required to produce a healthy tree and abudant fruit. Mayhaws can TOLERATE wet locations, they don't REQUIRE them to thrive.
Received on date requested. The plants I received were healthy and strong. I have not transplanted them and so far so good. If this changes I will add comments.
