Crataegus erythropoda is a hawthorn native to the southern Rocky Mountains in the U.S. The leaves are conspicuously shiny above and fruit ("haws") are dark purplish red.[2] It is seldom cultivated, but at one time was listed in the nursery trade under the common name "Chocolate Haw".[3] It is closely related to C. rivularis which has fruit that are fully black when ripe.[1][4]
