This Crazy Tree Grows 40 Kinds of Fruit


Everyone stop what you're doing right now and check out this amazing tree that everyone needs to plant immediately. Birthed from "graphing," or taking certain tree branches and pollinating them together, this tree can now grow 40 different kinds of stone fruit. This includes (but is not limited to) peaches, plums, apricots and even almonds! Sam Van Aken, a professor at the University of Syracuse, began traveling around upstate New York to find different types of stone fruits that he could use before beginning his creation. Watch this video to find out how he did it and hopefully find out when we can all have a tree like this!
