I cheated a bit and looked it up. Is it a hedge apple/monkey brains. It really does look like yellow brains!
Does anything eat it? More importantly could I eat it?

Lorna--
I believe that people eat it, but I've smelled it and I'm not eating it.

I can smell that thing from here.

Rhonda said...

No, I don't think you would want to eat that! :)
You always have such interesting WW pictures-you find the neatest things.
HAPPY WW!~

Rhonda said...

Looks very cool! No idea what it is. But reading the other comments I don't think I want to smell it either. teehee.

We were just studying these! I didn't read where people ate hedge apples but we did find a book that states people in the early 1900's would place the apples around their house and they are a natural pest repellent. You would often find them sitting on people's porches close to doors. It's the smell that keeps the pests away. We thought they were very interesting.


Happy WW!

We call them osage oranges here in Kentucky (and in Indiana, too).

My mother-in-law uses them in her basement to keep pests away!
