No, it is an ornamental item, we use in the house for bug deterrent. Also known as horse apple and hedge balls here.

If you soak them in water, the seeds will fall of easily. The seeds are the only part of the fruit that is edible. They taste like raw sunflower seeds and can also be roasted

I respectfully disagree. I freeze them scrape a little off ( about a table spoon ) each day. I'm certainly not making any medical claims. Been fighting various cancers most of my adult life. Since consuming hedge apples, no cancers have cropped up. 8 yrs! Proof is in the pudding, for me anyway. Not suggesting anything scientific here or recommending anything either. Word if caution, whether you decide to consume the seeds or fruit. The tree is in the rubber tree family. If you're allergic to latex, ( common allergy) you're allergic to hedge apples.

If a cow or horse has died eating them it's because the hedgeapples got stuck in the throat. Deer, squirrels , pigs eat them in abundance.

Yes, people have been drying them and making pills and tinctures to help fight colds and boost immune system. Some people freeze them and grate off a tablespoon and mix it with honey and take it when they feel like a cold is coming on and then put what's left wrapped up in the freezer. Amazing stuff. Some even say it helps with fighting Cancer

Hedge apples have been found to actually cure cancer. They make the body alkaline and cancer cant live in an alkaline body. Google hedge apples and cancer. They are not poisonous.

Freeze them solid and grate the frozen hedge apple for two tablespoons a day. Follow with a glass of water. They arent the best tasting fruit, a mix between cucumber and avacado? But health wise they are a gift.
