The Mayhaw is a fruit about 3/8" to 15/16" in diameter. The mayhaw normally flowers in February and March. Ripe from mid-April through early May, its fruit color varies from bright red to reddish yellow. It is not a desirable berry for eating raw, but it is great for flavoring, butter, jam, sauces, pie filling, coffee cakes, ice cream, wine, etc.
Take a few mintues to browse through the pictures and see a varitey of Mayhaws and work being done in the orchard.
Find a lot of information on Mayhaws. You can read about the history and even find information on about growing Mayhaws.
See a video on harvesting and even find one on caring for the trees. You can also view a video on a handheld shaker that I made.
I am a board member and past president of the Louisana Mayhaw Association and they are constantly upgrading and improving new varieties.
I have helped Paul over the years with the orchard. I love seeing the Orchard in full bloom. March and May is the best time to see all the red fruit on the trees.
