"Osage Oranges" at the Worthington Farmer's Market
Do you know about using Osage Orange to deter spiders? Osage Orange or Osage-orange? I showed a house in Lewis Center about four years ago and there were Osage Oranges in the basement. The buyer told me what they were... why they were there.
Maclura pomifera Wikipedia cites something that says the spider thing is not true...
Last year I was showing a house on acreage on N. Liberty Road and the buyer told me the trees along the driveway were Osage Orange trees(?) Osage Oranges are also called Hedge Apples. The tree was used as a border to farm fields, a living fence.
Next week is the last farmer's market in Worthington. Last week of the Olde Worthington Farmer's Summer Market. I hope she is there. I want an Osage Orange for the garage and one for the basement... I don't like spiders. I am willing to gamble $1.00.
