Last year at the farmers market Charley noticed a funny looking fruit that I was instantly curious about. It was a bright green color and had a bumpy/squiggled texture, it was called an osage orange. I don’t know that I could ever eat one but I knew I wanted to buy them and show them off! The guy told me that they are great for repelling spiders and other insects…sold!! As I was talking to him a girl came over and was grabbing tons of them, her boyfriend was laughing saying she has them everywhere in her house and that if she could she would make a necklace out of them and sleep with them! When I looked up more information on them they are a very interesting fruit in deed!! Needless to say I will buy them again for sure, their look is so unique and deterring bugs is a bonus!
I always see these spider fruits but have yet to buy one…. I’ll have to pick one up cuz our new house has loads of spiders!
Yeah they recommended them in the corners of rooms, I put one by my bed!!
PS Charley is absolutely adorable 🙂
thank you! 🙂
