Hedgeapples


The beautiful chartreuse hedgeapples, the fruit of the Osage orange tree dotted throughout Missouri, are spectacular. Yesterday I picked some to make a Christmas centerpiece. I'm getting in the season, I guess. Anything to avoid thinking about the elections. For more information on the hedgeapple, visit www.hedgeapple.com.

A couple weeks ago, my gf and I saw these "things" in the road and realized they had come from the tree above. We came home and looked them up and found they are hedge apples. We kept them -- two of them -- and I am very fond of them. Not being from the South, we had never seen them before.
What a delightful discovery!
Peace,
