Hi!
My name is Leila and I have 4 acres in SE Arizona. I have been planting fruits, and native edibles and medicinals for 20 years and trying to learn what is edible in my yard. Yesterday I learned about a plant called Mexican Hawthorn ( crataegus mexicana), or tejocote. I've been trying to find some to buy with no luck. If anyone knows where I can buy soem online, pelase let me know.

There isn't any place to buy them online, they are hard to find. You can get one from Exotica nursery, but you would probably have to go to Fallbrook to get it. I don't think he delivers to Arizona, but he might. I bought one from Exotica and it's growing very well for me.
