We called the tree the "bodark" tree. Those fruits are good for nothing and make it very difficult to maneuver when they fall. Below is more info.<br><br><br>"Bodark, Bois DArc, Osage Orange<br>Maclura pomifera<br>Central and East Texas <br>(top)<br> Moraceae - Mulberry<br>40 feet <br> <br>Tree with arching branches used by Indians for bows. Wood is very hard and durable. First chuckwagons were built of Bodark wood. Root yields a tan to orange dye. Sap of large, green fruit yields an insecticide. This plant has been used as a hedgerow, also called a Hedge Apple. "<br><br><br>
