The fruit of the Osage-orange is a nuisance in the home landscape and has little value. Hedge apples are not an important source of food for wildlife as most birds and animals find the fruit unpalatable. The thorny trees do provide nesting and cover for wildlife. googling hedge apple

  1. I think the skull should hang on the attic door right along the door knob. I wonder how many people would notice that!!! Lois

    By the way, belated happy birthday. I was only 64 on the 12th and Betsy 29? on the 5th.

  2. Thank you but I won’t be eating any. Only seeds are edible not other. Even squirrels won’t eat anything but seeds of them. The recipes listed seem to be only for real apples. Good spider repellant it says. If they were edible, I know my ancestors would have eaten them. They ate everything wild that was edible. Anyway, that’s what I got out of my google lesson. James was always told they were indelible too. It would take a lot of roasted seeds to make a serving.
