Osage Oranges


My daughter and I collected these Osage Oranges, also known as Hedge Apples, in the Nethermead in Prospect Park. We always look for them in October when they fall from the tree. They are large, chartreuse-colored and wrinkly (like brains.) They have a wonderful citrusy smell and are said to repel cockroaches and spiders. I have a bowlful of them out on my table.
