what else you should know

cut & sifted black haw bark

Also known as sweet haw and stag bush, black haw is a member of the honeysuckle family of flowering plants. Its genus name hints at the shape of the plant’s leaves, which are similar in appearance to plum leaves.

Black haw produces clusters of white flowers in spring, which are followed by yellow-green berry-like drupes or “haws” in autumn. As the fruits mature, they turn blue-black and may be used to make jams, compotes, wines and syrups.

Background:  In Canada the berries are sometimes used as a substitute for cranberries in jellies.

Safety: Do not eat the uncooked fruit. Do not take Black Haw if you are allergic to aspirin.
