Pomifera Oil Where does it come from?
Pomifera Oil comes from the The Osage Orange, or Maclura Pomifera. This fruit is the product of a common midwestern fruit tree. The Osage-orange is a small to medium-sized tree, having a short trunk and a rounded or irregular crown. The twigs are buff to orange-brown and are armed with one-half inch long spines. The stems exude a milky sap when cut. The Osage-orange is dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers are produced on separate trees. The small, green flowers appear in May or June. Female trees produce 3-to 5-inch diameter fruit which ripen in September or October and fall to the ground. The Osage-orange is native to a small area in eastern Texas, southeastern Oklahoma, and southwestern Arkansas. While the wood of the Osage Orange tree, which is highly resistant to rot, is valuable for it’s usage in many farm related things such as fence posts, tree nails, furniture and archery bows, the fruit is considered a throwaway in the landscape and is thought to have little value as it is not an important source of nutrition for animals.
