If you happen upon an apple tree in the wilderness, unless it grows near the remains of an ancient homestead, you have probably discovered a wild apple tree. Also called a Hawthorn tree, the thorn apple produces many small fruits known as haws, which some prize as a jam ingredient.
This small tree, sometimes considered a bush, offers its deliciously seedy fruit nestled among a protective array of thorns.


Not to be confused with a plague of locusts, the honey locust tree has a trunk and branches liberally spiked with sharp, flat thorns. You may not think so, if you have a tree carefully propagated over generations to eliminate the unfriendly aspects and encourage larger, more flavorful fruit. As such, the wild apple will have some survival gear which has allowed it to outlast the generations: thorns. The pomegranate originated in Persia, but has become increasingly popular in the western world as more people discover its health value as a source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Not as sociable with other species, wild plums have thorns to discourage visitors from plucking their fruits.


The pear is one of the few fruit trees which, when planted and allowed to grow without any human intervention, survives quite handily on its own. The fruit pulp of the honey locust is sweet like molasses and used both as a source of sugar and an ingredient in home brewing.
After all, fruit trees developed specifically for the harvest of their fruit have no need of thorns, since the orchardists who grow them have a vested interest in perpetuating, rather than ravaging, the tree.
