In an old El’s Guide article, “Old Angrath’s Smokehouse”, you mention a “hornapple” orchard. Is that a typo for “thornapple”? If not, what is a hornapple? Not a typo. "Hornapples" are so-named because their scaly gray outer skins are studded with points shaped like miniature ox-horns. They grow plentifully on stunted trees/bushes in the Sword Coast and Moonsea North wilderlands, and the Great Dale. VERY hardy.

Are they a type of fruit? Yes, they are edible apples. Consumed by rural folk, pilgrims, adventurers, prospectors, explorers, and other travelers in the wilderlands. Very tart, but cultivated in orchards by some. GREAT with the right cheeses.
