Maclura pomifera Cannonball, also called Osage thorn and Osage orange or Cannonball, is dioecious and a plant from the mulberry family. These plants, originally from North America, were in the area where the Osage Indians were staying.

The Cannonball is a thornless variety whose very decorative fruits can weigh up to more than 1 kilogram. The fruits are light green in color and have a special shape that resembles a brain. Also called Monkey Brains. The fruits are purely decorative, they are not toxic, but they are also not tasty.
