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.

There is a roadside park a few miles from my house. The park is
filled with hawthorn bushes not trees. The hawthorn berries are dry
with no flavor. Some people here make jelly from them. A woman told
me she uses red coloring and adds flavoring to the jelly. I don't
understand why even try to make jelly from the hawthorns. A few years
I planted hundreds of hawthorn berries in my garden but none of them
I wanted bushes for the birds. Possibly the mice ate them over the
