Red Champ Mayhaw â€“ New Variety!
Another new hybrid from Billy Craft, a cross of Maxine and Double GG, two of the best hybrids available at this point. Red Champ possesses all of the qualities of a great mayhaw, strong growing disease-free trees, uniform ripening, and very large almost 1-inch size fruit. Excellent deep red fruit makes the best-flavored jellies. Harvest mid to late May. All mayhaw varieties benefit from cross-pollination. Red Champ is an early-blooming mayhaw variety. Plant with any other early blooming varieties for good fruit set.

Fruitscaping™ with Mayhaw Trees
Enrich your garden with an often overlooked Southern delight by Fruitscaping™ with our Mayhaw Trees. These highly adaptable trees offer fragrant blooms, vibrant autumn colors, and a distinctive fruit that is cherished across the South.
Mayhaw Trees are known for their white, fragrant spring blossoms, which give way to clusters of crimson to yellow-orange fruit, depending on the variety. Their attractive, hawthorn-like fruits are a delight to harvest and are often transformed into jellies, syrups, or wine, giving a unique Southern twist to your culinary explorations.
These trees are versatile, thriving in various soil conditions, although they do prefer moist, well-drained soils. The Mayhaw Trees also appreciate full to partial sun, helping to foster healthy growth and abundant fruit production. With their hardy nature and minimal pest and disease issues, they’re a low-maintenance option, even for the novice gardener.
As the trees mature, their lovely form provides an ornamental quality, making them an appealing addition to any landscape. Their lush green foliage turns to stunning shades of yellow and orange in the fall, adding a burst of color to your garden.
Mayhaw Trees stand out when grown as a focal point in your landscape. However, they can also be integrated into a mixed edible garden alongside other fruit trees, like pears and plums, creating a beautiful and bountiful garden space.
Embrace the excitement of Fruitscaping™ with Mayhaw Trees. From the journey of planting and caring to the thrill of harvesting your homegrown mayhaws, these trees offer a unique and rewarding gardening experience.
