If you want an edible hawthorn, you might try Richard Fahey's selection
of Crataegus mollis. He calls it "Heart's Delight" and it's very good
eaten fresh. Soft, smooth, slightly sweet, and about the size of a
cherry. Richard is Nafex's apple chairman. Very low tech, you can
only contact him by surface mail.

My 13 year old mayhaws are being whacked. If any of you know of a rust
resistant type of haw or anything else that can be successfully grafted
to them, the stumps will still be there to graft to next spring. I
wish I'd listened years ago when Chris Inhulsen dismissed them because
they got rust. I know "Winter King" is supposed to be resistant, but
this spring I grafted a seedling of it onto a native haw and it got
some pretty orange spots on the leaves. I got to thinking that if the
birds dropped seeds of the real 'Winter King' all around they could
keep the hawthorn and quince rusts going forever. Thanks.
