This tree is a natural masterpiece! The tree of forty fruits is an amazing hybrid tree (not a GMO) that grows 40 different types of stone fruits all on one tree. Because of the chromosomal similarities of these natural fruit trees they can be grafted to one main tree and produce their own unique fruit. The tree has stone fruit heirloom, antique, and native species of fruit all growing on the tree.
Sam Van Aken has been growing the trees for years and has successfully grown plumbs, nectarines, apricots, peaches, and cherries. This is an exceptional way of including conservation of specific heirlooms and antique fruits into one all encompassing tree. These trees are far from cheap though as they take time to grow, and run around twenty eight thousand dollars to purchase. He has introduced almonds and it will be interesting to see how they grow on the tree as well. God has given us so many breathtakingly gorgeous things in this world, and what Sam has done is taken God’s beautiful creations, and pooled their beauty and bounty together in this tree. This is a great reflection of what an incredible artist God is.
