Battle of the Haws
I have been batting around the idea of attempting to grow a Mayhaw tree for the jelly. But I know I would be pushing its boundaries a bit. Not a big deal if the right microclimate can be found. So I am wondering about the Yellow Haw or Summer Haw as it is also called. This one is indigenous to my area so it should do better with less worrying about finding the 'just right' spot. But what I can't seem to find information on is the flavor of this haw, which happens to have the scientific name Crataegus flava. Has anyone perchance to have tasted both of these, or even just the Yellow Haw? Is it worth it or should I just push a Mayhaw and hope for the best?
Edit: Just did some curiosity checking. Despite immediate suggestion, the latin word flava just means 'yellow'.
