Crataegus succulenta is a species of hawthorn known by the common names fleshy hawthorn,[3] succulent hawthorn,[3] and round-fruited cockspurthorn.[4] It is "the most wide-ranging hawthorn in North America",[1] native to much of southern Canada, and the United States as far south as Arizona, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, and Tennessee.[1] In this wide area there are many variant forms that have received species names, but can also be considered as synonyms.
