Hawthorn Berry History
A flowering shrub, hawthorn (Crataegus oxyacantha) is a member of the rose family (Rosaecae) and native to northern Europe. It now grows worldwide, with most grown commercially in the UK and eastern Europe. It is also known as may blossom, may bush, white thorn, haw, hazels, English hawthorn, quickset and one-seed hawthorn, among others.
The long-living hawthorn tree can grow to heights of 30 feet. It displays dark green leaves, pure white flowers, and fruits that hang in clusters. The tasty, red hawthorn berries, also called the "haw" have been used for candies, jellies and wines. Hawthorn berries have been used as an herbal remedy for centuries to uplift and strengthen the physical and emotional heart. In the Middle Ages, women were known to eat hawthorn berries to heal a "broken heart." The leaves are also edible.
Hawthorn berries played a role in folklore as well. It was thought to symbolize chastity and prosperity, so it was often incorporated into marriage wreaths and bridal decorations.
