The “Tree of 40 Fruit” is exactly as awesome as it sounds

Epicurious:

Each tree begins as a slightly odd-looking specimen resembling some kind of science experiment, and for much of the year, looks like just any other tree. In spring, the trees bloom to reveal an incredibly striking and thought-provoking example of what can happen when nature inspires art. Then, over the course of several months, Van Aken’s trees produce an incredible harvest of plums, peaches, apricots, nectarines, and almonds, including many you’ve likely never seen before.

All on one tree. Spectacular looking.

    We were recently discussing what kind of fruit trees we’d like to have in our yard. I’d love one of these though I’m a little afraid to know what it would cost.
