Mayhaw

The Mayhaw tree, Crataegus aestivalis, is a slow-growing native North American tree that reaches a height of 30 feet with a rounded canopy that spreads to 35 feet or more.


The dark green, deciduous leaves are often three-lobed and have red/brown undersides.  The sparkling white, showy springtime flowers appear before the new leaves unfurl and are followed by the production of large, red-dotted fruits.


The spreading, low branching habit of growth makes this best suited for planting in a large open area of turf.  If regular pruning can be provided to keep low, drooping branches pruned, this tree can be planted closer to a walk. 


Mayhaw trees have small, round reddish fruits that are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter; resembles crabapples.  It ripens from mid-April early May, hence the name Mayhaw.


After frost, the leaves turn a beautiful yellow.  Although the tree is naturally found in wet, shady sites, it is well adapted to drier, better-drained land and produces more and better fruit in full sunlight.


The trees are long-lived and are known to produce fruit for more than 50 years!  They are more resistant to disease and can withstand low temperatures better than common fruit trees.
