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.
These two eastern mayhaws were an autumn order, and arrived quickly in very nice shape. I planted them and am hopeful for their success in the spring.
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.
