[NAFEX] Fleshy Hawthorne

I think the original question was about the taste of certain hawthorns 
that are advertised as being a bit "juicier" than others.  It sounds 
like so far no one has actually tasted these fruits.  I'd also be very 
interested to hear if someone has.

I originally got a C. douglasii to experiment with these and then got 
what is listed as a Cherry Hawthorn. Both are growing for me here at 
7000 ft in NM but no where near blooming size yet. The fact that they 
have survived here is significant because, even though we are rather far 
south, the altitude and harsh conditions cause us to lose many trees. 
For comparison sake, Illinois Everbearing mulberry has not been able to 
survive, though another one called Northrup has. Can't get any of the 
Juglans to survive.  The tops of raspberries rarely survive. So these 
hawthorns have at least proven their hardiness.
