I planted mayhaws partly because I wanted something to remind me of the hawthornes in England, but they bloom too early to crop most years and the fruit gets covered in rust. So I've been chopping them down, sorry that I let that space go to waste for so many years. Chris Inhulsen told me way back when that they got the rust. I think that by growing in swamps in their native Deep South they avoid junipers. And, no, the scrawny fruit would not justify the room they take if it wasn't ruined by rust. They don't bloom well for me, not enough to be pretty, and certainly not enough to make good crops. Has anyone else got mayhaws that actually bloom heavily? I don't think that T.O. and Sherwood would have been so wild about them if they didn't do well down there. Donna
