Hawthorn Berries Safe For Dogs
It’s not uncommon for your pet to graze on the fence, pick up berries and crave a snack, in fact there are a few healthy snacks when you walk on the wild side.
Organic Way Hawthorn Berries Fruit Whole (crataegus Monogyna)
Hawthorn berries can be eaten by dogs. If they eat too much they can get a stomach ache but mostly they are safe to eat.
Avoid any areas where you know they may have been sprayed with chemicals but otherwise they are a healthy snack for dog walks.
At first glance they look similar and have hawthorn leaves on the back giving the impression that they are hawthorn berries.
Bryony berries do not have a flower tip (like the little bit below the apple core) and are shiny and very red.
Are Holly Berries Poisonous To Dogs?
If you touch them, be sure to wash your hands immediately as they are poisonous to humans as well.
Bryony berries will also be in the plant chain and Hawthorn will be linked to the stem.
If your dog eats Bryony, you need to go to the vet. Every plant is poisonous but the roots have the highest amount of poison.
You may also encounter Hop who will be using the hedgerows to get into the light.
Are Yew Berries Poisonous?
It’s unlikely that your dog will be able to reach the hops as they climb high over fences and trees but some flowers will fall, so be careful.
While you are eating with your dog, watch out for nettles (they usually don’t grow in autumn and winter), you may get stung but your dog should stay safe as their fur protects them.
The old myth, if you get stung, a Nettle Dock leaf will stop the sting if you rub it on the stung area is not true. Dock is toxic to dogs.
If you happen to try rubbing Dock leaf on the nettle sting area, don’t let your dog lick it afterwards.
What Can I Do With Hawthorn Berries?
They contain Oxalate which is very toxic to dogs and humans (but you probably won’t lick them if you are bitten).
Cooking the leaves is said to make them safe to eat but I would not give them to my dog.
Blackberries are very safe for your dog to eat. The berries themselves are safe although they may get a few prickles trying to reach them.
Check your dogs paws after they have been around the fence, to make sure there are no thorns or seeds stuck to their fur, paws or pads.

So if you walk along the footpaths in the hedgerows you might see a few of these berries and flowers, enjoy and stay safe, don’t eat them if you can’t point them in the right direction.

They are sweet and mild if you get them at the right time, and in years past I have tasted them in early fall. This year, the Washington hawthorn was sweet and mild in late October. But by then, the one-seeded hawthorn was starting to rot, so next year I’ll look for those in mid-October.
I owe a debt to Josh Fecteau’s recent hawthorn post, which inspired me to try hawthorn berries again. As Josh points out, there are many species of hawthorn, perhaps 50 in New England. And, in all of North America, perhaps a thousand species, according to George Symonds (in his wonderful Tree Identification Book: A New Method for Useful Tree Identification and Recognition.
, my favorite guide to learning tree ID). Fortunately, you don’t need to know how to identify specific species. You just need to know it’s a hawthorn, because all hawthorns have edible berries. HOWEVER, like apple seeds, hawthorn seeds contain cyanide, and should not be eaten. Don’t be afraid; just spit out the seeds.

Why bother with hawthorns? They are beautiful, interesting, and wild edibles with known health benefits. Some people use the berries to make hawthorn jelly, but I have yet to try this. The berries, leaves and flowers can be used to make tea. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see how I make hawthorn berry extract.
I will describe two types here, to show the general characteristics. That should help you recognize a hawthorn when you see one, but the
If you are not sure if you have hawthorn when you want to eat it, please check other sources until you are SURE, before eating the berries.
This grows as a small tree or shrub, and bears clusters of white flowers in late spring. The berries turn red in September (here), but are delicious later. By October 31st, they were delicious, and probably past their peak. Each berry has 3-5 seeds.
Garden Myth: If You See Birds Eating Berries, They’re Edible
The leaves are lobed and toothed, as you can see in my photo above. Many other species of hawthorn have similar leaves. The tree is heavily armed with long thorns, up to 3 inches long. However, with reasonable care, you can easily harvest the berries, which often hang from the branch. It becomes even easier later in the season after most of the leaves have fallen and no longer hide the thorns.
Also called common hawthorn, this European native escaped cultivation and naturalized in North America. It is sometimes called an invasive plant, but I don’t see it very often, and when I do see it, there aren’t many in one place. It is probably invasive in other parts of the country, but it does not seem to be very aggressive here. Like the Washington hawthorn, the single-seeded hawthorn grows as a shrub or small tree, and bears clusters of white flowers in late spring. The red, egg-shaped berries ripen earlier (than Washington hawthorn) in the fall and contain one seed (hence the name). The leaves are more deeply toothed than those of the Washington hawthorn, but the thorns are much smaller, only about 1/2 inch long.
Hawthorns are common in the forest floor here in Massachusetts, but those are sharp specimens that don’t produce well. It is very shady in the forest. To find hawthorns full of fruit, look in sunny areas, such as fields with shrubs and bushes, at the edges of meadows, and along rivers. They are often grown as ornamentals, so if your friend has them and doesn’t mind picking the berries, you have the opportunity to easily find food at your fingertips.
This is my first experience using hawthorn berries, and I use them to make an extract, with the same process you would use to make vanilla extract. I hope to use the hawthorn extract as a spice in cooking and baking. I filled a clean mason jar about 3/4 full with berries, covered them with 80 proof vodka, and sealed the jar. I’m not sure how long it will take to extract enough flavor from the berries, so I’ll be checking it daily. I know some extracts, (like vanilla extract) take weeks, so that’s what I’m expecting here.
