One of the finest southern jellies in mayhaw jelly. It is produced using the juice from mayhaw (Crataegus opaca) berries, a natural digitalis, it is claimed. Mayhaw is a hawthorne family tree native to the southern and southeastern United States. In the wild, mayhaws usually grow in low, wet, slightly acid areas: however, mayhaws produce best when grown on good upland soils in full sun. Warner Farms has a 20 acre mayhaw orchard. Honeybee colonies in the fields pollinate the flowers to produce the mayhaw fruit. Mayhaw products are a truly unique to the southern locale.
