Crataegus pinnatifida var. major 'Big Golden Star'

Unlike the common hawthorn, this tree has few or no thorns, which makes gathering the fruit much easier (and safer!). This cultivar was bred for fruit size - the Chinese use them for candy, soups and traditional medicines.

It is a striking small tree with very large, lobed leaves. Amazing masses of white spring flower clusters, good autumn color, and large (for a hawthorn) edible fruits 1 1/2 inch in diameter, that have an apple taste, and hang on the tree long after the leaves have dropped. Tough, disease-resistant and hardy - this tree is great for hedgerows or in small scale, rustic designs. Very popular with wildlife.
