Hawthorn is found mostly in Europe, eastern asia and eastern north america. Its use has been growing since the 1800's. In britain, hawthorn was an important part of many may festivals and was known as "May flower" in france, hawthorn goes by the name belief that the crown of thorns worn by christ was made of its branches.
Hawthorn bares dark-green lobed, toothed leaves and in late spring it yields clusters of lovely, sweetly scented white flowers. The interaction of leaf and flower make for a taste that is sweet, yet slightly bitter.
