Hawthorn Berries Vs Extract – Harvesting hawthorn berries is a new one for me this year. They are sweet and mild if you get them at the right time, and in years past we tasted them too early in the fall. This year the Washington hawthorn was sweet and mild in late October. But by then the single-seeded hawthorn was starting to rot, so next year I’ll be looking for the mid-October ones.
I owe some credit to Josh Fecteau’s recent post for inspiring me to try hawthorns again. As Josh points out, there are many species of hawthorn, maybe 50 in New England. And, in all of North America, probably a thousand species, according to George Symonds (from his wonderful Tree Identification Book: A New Method for the Practical Identification and Recognition of Trees
Hawthorn Berries Vs Extract
, my favorite guide to learning tree ID). Fortunately, you don’t have to be able 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 panic; just spit out the seeds.

Why bother with lice? They are beautiful, interesting and tasty wild edibles with known health benefits. Some people use the berries to make hawthorn jelly, but I haven’t tried that yet. The leaves, leaves and flowers can be used to make a tea. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see how I make hawthorn fruit extract.
I will describe two species here, to exemplify the general characteristics. That should help you recognize a hawthorn when you see one, but I
If you are not sure you have a hawthorn when foraging, please check with additional sources until you are sure before eating the berries.
It grows as a small tree or large shrub and bears clusters of white flowers in late spring. Berries turn red in September (here) but sweeten later. By October 31st, they were sweet and maybe a little past their peak. Each berry has 3-5 seeds.

The leaves are lobed and toothed as you can see in my photo above. Many other hawthorn species have similar leaves. The tree is heavily armed with long thorns, up to about 3 inches long. However, with reasonable caution, you can easily harvest the berries, which tend to hang far from the branch. It’s even easier later in the season, after many of the leaves have fallen and are no longer hiding the thorns.
Also called common hawthorn, this is a European native that escaped cultivation and naturalized in North America. It is sometimes labeled as an invasive plant, but I don’t find it very often, and when I do, there aren’t many in one area. It may be invasive in other parts of the country, but it doesn’t seem to be particularly aggressive here. Like Washington hawthorn, single-seeded hawthorn grows as a shrub or small tree and bears clusters of white flowers in late spring. The oval red berries ripen slightly earlier (than Washington hawthorn) in the fall and contain a single seed (hence the name). The toothed leaves are more deeply lobed than those of Washington hawthorn, but the spines are much smaller, only about 1/2 inch to an inch in length.
Hawthorns are common in the forest floor here in Massachusetts, but these are weak specimens that do not fruit well. It’s too shady in the forest. To find fruit-laden hawthorns, look in sunny places such as scrub fields and thickets, at the edges of pastures and along streams. They’re often planted as ornamentals, so if your friend has one and you don’t mind picking some berries, you’ve got an easy foraging experience at your fingertips.
This is my first experience using hawthorn berries and I use them to make an extract, using the same process you would use to make vanilla extract. I hope to use hawthorn extract as a flavoring in cooking and baking. I filled a clean canning jar with berries, covered them with 80 proof vodka and capped the jar. I’m not sure how long it will take to extract enough flavor from the berries, so I’ll check it daily. I know other extracts (like vanilla extract) take weeks, so that’s what I’m expecting here.Alcohol Free Liquid Hawthorn Extract 59L Dropper Bottle 2 Dropper Bottle40768
