Hawthorn berries are small fruit that grows on trees and bushes belonging to the Crataegus genus.

The family includes hundreds of classes commonly found in North America, Asia, and Europe.

Their berries are crammed with nourishment and have a tangy, tart taste, and light sweetness, varying in color from golden yellow to deep red to black (PubMed.gov Source).

For ages, hawthorn berry has been used as an herbal remedy for digestive problems, heart failure, and high blood pressure. In fact, it’s a key part of traditional Chinese medicine.
