Description: Hawthorn flowers grow in small clusters that are creamy white, red, pink or combinations of those colours depending on the variety. The flowers turn to clusters of red berries starting out crimson red and deepening to a dark red by the end of autumn, the berries are also known as haws.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that the word haw means hedge? The berries are not actually berries at all but drupes; a fruit in which the outer part of the pericarp known as the exocarp becomes fleshy and soft like a berry, while the inner endocarp hardens like a nut, forming a stone or seed. Hawthorn berries contain a single seed, these seeds were once gathered by young children to use as ‘itching powder’.
SUGGESTED USEHawthorn berry powder can be added to cakes, breads and biscuits, decoctions and infusions of the powder can be added to toning lotions and creams for the skin.
