Honey Locust - Gleditsia Triocanthus

Honey locust are native trees that grow to be very large shade or forest trees. They produce large pods that are filled with small hard seeds and a sweet pulp. The pulp is edible and very tasty, however honey locust pods have their real value as livestock feed. The pods have a long history of being fed to sheep and cattle. Crops can be enormous some years. This tree was a big focus of J. Russel Smith’s (author of Tree Crops) work in establishing perennial crops to feed livestock.

Our seed is grown from selected trees from the Hershey Farm in Pennsylvania. These trees produce truly gigantic crops and pods that have a lot more sweet pulp than found in the wild.
