amazing tree of 40 fruit

Artist and Syracuse University professor Sam Van Aken has carefully nurtured beautiful trees that can bear over 40 different types of stone fruits, including peaches, apricots, almonds, and nectarines.

Using an ancient technique called “chip grafting,” (cutting buds of various varieties into a base branch).

The process of growing these amazing trees is a long and painstaking process, sometimes taking up to three years to ‘bear fruit’, but the rewards are simply amazing. In the springtime, the “Tree of 40 Fruit” sprouts beautiful purple and pink blossoms and in the summer, the tree starts to bear wonderful fruit of all kinds.

Professor Van Aken has planted these beautiful tress in many locations for people to enjoy. Each tree is unique with different varieties of fruit on each one. Each tree is a beautiful mixture of art and nature.

Professor Van Aken told Time, “I wanted people to have this experience where a tree is blossoming in all these different colors or growing all these different kinds of fruit all at once.”

This is a wonderful example of how we can embrace and work with nature to create something simply beautiful. Perhaps by planting many more of these wonderful trees for people to enjoy it will make people realize how wonderful nature truly is and not take it for granted.
