Hawthorn is a tree-lined spiny bush that is found throughout Europe and in Greece in sparse forests and fences, a close relative of the firearm. It is a fairly dense, spiny bush, made 5-8 meters. Its leaves are small, triangular, shiny, with lobes. The flowers are white, small, with rounded petals and with many stamens, which are once red and very aromatic. The fruit is oval, spheroidal with yellowish flesh and contains 2-3 seeds.
