We've grown many varieties of Mayhaw, and also the Chinese hawthorne and 
both make wonderful jelly.  Neither has what you would call a juicy fruit, 
but the flavor is quite wonderful.  Chinese fruits are larger, but the tree 
seems to be more susceptible to Quince rust which damages small branches, 
leaves and fruits.    Hector Black,  zone 6 middle tn.
