Mayhaw Wood

I picked up some mayhaw wood while I was in Texas. The tree is native to Louisiana. It grows wild in the swamp land but is gaining popularity as a graphted orchard tree grown all over the south.

The berry looks line a small plum and is seedless. It makes some of the best jelly in the world.

I am hoping that it makes some good smoke wood. The wood is deep orange when first cut. I don't know what to compare it to just yet.

I hear tale that it do make good wine.

BW when April rolls around take a drive south to any roadside stand and you should be able to find some jelly.

Hey Sis..been a Texas native since the Red Sea was still only Pink. Did have one short stint in Okiehoma back in the early 70's but there was way too many Okies up there for me...so I come home quick. Now must confess I havent spent too much time in the swamps of SE Texas...maybe that why I aint heard of that tree. How long you been in Jasper? You ever run into my old cajun pal named Charlie Pousson? Think he hang the hat over in Nederland. Or did back in the good old days.
