Our township used to be known for them. There are still a half dozen or so that are 100 - 150 years old. They are massive. Nice looking trees but messy. Other than beaning your brother, there is not much use for the fruit that i know of. Recently I read someplace it was good for something, I think it was on Citydata. .
Hope at least you sold them and didn't burn them up. Great wood.

I am not one for cutting down any healthy tree but, after the cost of repairing tires for a farm tractor and see the cuts on one of my horses nose from diving for grass near that tree/bush, it got cut and burned.
Some prized wood. You could have sold it. I don't tell anyone where I know there is some or someone would go and chop it down.

In fact, I wasn't thinking of eating it, but drink it as juice ; I like to mix some FRESH fruit juice together and try the taste.
But I don't think it's possible after I read what mentioned at the link and watched some youtube about it. No one said it's delicious; all of them agreed on the same opinion although all of them said the fruit has an orange flavor and watermelon taste, others said close to option, or avocado taste.
Even though, it's still amazing as a decor, yellow with green is wonderful!
I read a lot of the posters' comments on this fruit; it's interesting!

I wonder, are there a lot of researches/studies on this fruit?

Hedge apples, also known as Osage oranges, are generally considered inedible.
