OTHER: The Hedge Apple is a small tree to a large shrub with spiny branches & interesting bark. It gets its name because they’re commonly used as a wind break or fence row, & have bright yellow - green round 3 - 6" fruit. Hedge Apples have bumpy skin rather than smooth though. The fruit is not poisonous, but it’s not worth eating either. Lol. The plant has many other uses. The wood is dense, & is used for fence posts & is great for fires because it is slow burning. The plant also has medicinal properties, is used to make dyes, & the fruit used decoratively.

I guess the description was not clear I was thinking these were the actual item that was pictured, not seeds. When I received seeds I was very disappointed.

For some reason I thought I was receiving the hedge apple not just the seeds

Where is it? I’ve never seen it and apparently I’m only 30 miles away from where it was shipped

These came immediately! I'm hoping I can make them grow. A great bonus pack of wild flower seeds were included.
