New to Ozark....Please tell me about Hedge Apples.

17 years ago

Hi All. Well we finally made the move from Florida to Missouri and I'm in need of some good ole mid-west education. As my husband and I have been out scouting around looking for property to buy we have noticed these yellow/green large round citrus looking fruits in fields and on the side of the roads. Just today I found out the name....AKA Hedge Apples. I've googled it and see that they can be a repellent to insects and spiders. Is that true? Does it really work? Would love to know what does one really do with these....hedgeapples....other than let them rot in a field?
