This Guy Created an Amazing Tree That Grows 40 Different Kinds of Fruit

Meet Frankentree, the Swiss Army knife of plants.

Have you ever thought while harvesting a fruit tree, “I wish this tree made forty different kinds of fruit instead of just one.” Probably not, but it would still be pretty cool right? Thanks to artist and Syracuse professor Sam Van Aken, such a tree does exist, not as a way to simplify fruit gathering but as a spectacular work of art. For years now, Van Aken has been grafting limbs of different stone fruit trees together from Syracuse to Arkansas in an attempt to make what he calls the “Tree of 40 Fruit.” Because the trees take so long to develop he does not have a completely finished product yet, but in the coming years his trees will finally become the works of art he envisioned.
