Hawthorn or blackthorn?

When we’re running our foraging courses we often get asked whether we’re looking at hawthorn or blackthorn.  So in this short video I take a look at the differences between the two.  It’s worth knowing the differences between them as whilst they both produce an edible fruit, what you might do with those fruits is quite different.

We look at the differences between hawthorn and blackthorn on our 1 Day Foraging courses.

You can see photos from all of our courses on our Facebook page.
