Crataegus pubescens (syn. mexicana)
Hawthorn - Mexican
A hardy, fast growing semi-evergreen small tree with dense branches and practically no thorns. Decorative for most of the year. White flowers followed by yellow edible fruit. Fairly large oval leaves turn orange-red in late autumn. Adapts to almost any well-drained location, including clay soils but prefers a lime rich soil and dislikes extremely dry conditions. Frost hardy. Suitable for street planting, hedging or as a specimen. For a similar tree but a red berry look at the Crataegus Smithiana.
From Monday 11 October we will again be taking appointments to visit the farm for those able to travel to regional NSW. To abide by NSW regulations, all visitors must be double vaccinated against COVID-19.
