Osage Orange


Payment must be made at the time order is placed, unpaid orders will be cancelled.


A medium to large sized shade tree orginally native to parts of Texas and Arkansas, Osage orange has become naturalized all over the U.S. due to its great adapability and great drought tolerance once established. Naturally occurring osage orange are identifiable by their large lime-green softball-sized fruit and abundance of thorns. The varieties for sale (Wichita and White Shield) are however both fruitless and thornless.
