The Osage orange (Maclura pomifera) comes from the southern United States especially from Arkansas and Oklahoma down to the Mexican border. It has now found its way to Italy and Croatia. It can reach heights of up to 50 feet and a crown diameter of 40 feet. The fruits are quite large, up to 6 inches across. It was named after the Osage tribe which originally lived in the tree’s natural habitat. The Osage also discovered the wonderful suitability of wood for use as a bow.
The wood is very hard, dense, and has a quite irregular growth, making it more challenging to work. It is quite durable. Freshly cut, it is a rather garish yellow, but it will darken over time into a brownish color. It is a very popular wood for bows, but only once split. The bows are carved from the natural splits.
