Was this tree next to a tennis court?
That tree is known as an Osage Orange, Hedge apple, the french called it a Bodark or Bow tree the native Americans made bows from it, the wood from a Hedge tree will damn near throw sparks off of a chainsaw blade, i have seen fence posts over a hundred years old that just seem to get harder with age, some of the first farmers on the plains would plant hedge close together to use as a living fence, it was known to be bull high and hog tight, as in a bull could not jump it and a hog could not squeze through it.
Hedge apples are more the size of soft balls.
