Storing Hedge Apples

I know I read that hedge apples last 2 to 3 mo., how can you make them last all year?

I read somewhere that if you do not cut them, they will not rot. They will merely dry up. Some people also freeze them. Drying any kind of fruit, whether in the sun or with a dehydrator, will also preserve it.

I did not know about this fascinating fruit. Apparently it repels insects, mice, etc. I will have to be on the lookout for this now.

You can freeze them or dry them whole. Don't cut them or they will rot.
