Beware: Falling Fruit

I waited for these Osage-oranges to fall to the ground…and they finally did LOTS of them.  It made me laugh as I remembered what Manual of Woody Landscape Plants by Dirr says in additional plant notes “Large fruits are a nuisance and a problem in public areas as people will invariably use them as ammunition.”  I cannot begin to fathom picking this up and throwing it at someone!

I found their random curve quite beautiful without being air-borne.
