The tree itself is a sight to behold, with its shiny green leaves, thorny branches, and huge round fruit. It is native to the south-central United States, but has since been widely naturalized. The fruit is popular with animals and is often used as feed. The Osage orange also has a rich history in American agriculture. Before the invention of barbed wire, it was planted in hedges to contain farm animals, earning the name "Hedge Apple". The wood of the Osage orange is also highly valued, being one of the most durable and rot-resistant woods in North America. It has been used for making bows for archery, fence posts, piers, and even furniture. If you're looking for a versatile and resilient tree for your property, the Osage orange may be just what you need.
