Answer: I think you're refering to Osage Orange (Maclura pomifera). This is a fast-growing deciduous tree or shrub with a spreading, open habit. There are both male and female plants. If there's a male nearby the female will produce large, lumpy fruit sometimes called hedge-apples. These inedible fruits resemble bumpy, yellow-green oranges. Osage Orange grows prolifically in your gardening region.
