Osage-Orange

Hedge Apple Osage Orange

This thing is called an Osage-orange in the tree guide put out by the Arkansas Forestry Commission. I’ve also heard it called a hedge apple, a mock orange and a bois d’arc. We have these trees around here in the Ozarks but I don’t know of any I could point you to. This Osage-orange I picked up in Kansas, where it isn’t native, but saw them by the thousands. Impressive.
