Put your osage oranges in a barrel or container with holes in the lid, put an inch of water in the bottom 1 inch no more. Let them freeze during winter, when spring comes and they thaw, smash them up add a little water and make a slurry, pour the slurry in a plowed ground, and wala you have a osage tree.
