Nasty tree, that one. Had a huge tree in Dallas, any time you nicked a root it shot up a shoot with inch long thorns which would cause festering sores if you tangled with it. I worked for the Dallas Historical Society back then. There was some underground work in downtown Dallas and folks would bring in foot long blocks of osage orange or bois d'arc wood which was used for paving roads back in the 1860s or so. Would not rot underground. Word is that the fruit is an insect repellant. I wouldn't use it.
Don't know if its the same hedge, but I was talking to a honey vendor down in South Mississippi asking about their light variety. He told me it was from hedge flowers. Now that's good stuff. Okatoma Honey
