Maclura pomifera | at home snapshot

This past weekend I wandered through Guelph’s Arboretum and found the strangest fruit.

Maclura pomifera 2

After some digging online, I found out this comes from a Maclura pomifera tree and is commonly knows as the Osage orange or hedge apple among other things.

Gosh, isn’t nature nifty?
