    Osage Orange: Many uses, none epicurean

    2008-10-04 - Photo By Pen.
    A HEDGE APPLE BY ANY OTHER NAME is an Osage apple, an Osage orange, a hedgeball, a horseapple, brand fruit, wild orange, among others. According to most sources, the fruit is not toxic, but isn't palatable either, and cows can choke on them. Some use them for insect and spider repellents. Maybe they are best as throw-away toys for little kids. The trees were orginally planted around here for wind breaks and as living cattle fences. The most famous hedgeapple trees near by are at Ft. Harrod in Harrodsburg, KY, and at the Telsie Fudge place on the Toria Road near Chestnut Grove.
