The Inspiring Living Art of Sam Van Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruit

This “40 in 1” tree may seem like something out of a fairy tale, but in reality, it exists on our planet.

Thanks to expert grafting techniques, Sam Van Aken, an artist from Syracuse University in the US, successfully created this magical tree. When looking at this tree, one cannot help but be reminded of the beautiful cherry blossom trees in the land of Phu Tang with their vibrant and stunning colors.

After planting, the tree undergoes a five-year grafting process by the artist, Sam Van Aken. The tree will eventually bear 40 varieties of heirloom stone fruit. Van Aken has spent over a decade developing this technique by researching and studying fruit trees. Stone fruits are among the most inter-compatible fruit species. Stone fruits include peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries and almonds.

Many forgotten stone fruit varieties are preserved through Van Aken’s unique work, as they are no longer commercially grown. Most grocery stores and markets only carry a few varieties of each fruit species.

In late summer and early fall (July to October), the tree bears fruit with 40 different types such as peaches, plums, almonds, and more. Truly impressive, isn’t it?

The Tree of 40 Fruit is a true masterpiece of art and conservation. It has become a symbol of community. Bringing people together to share in the joy of harvesting the fruit. The Tree of 40 Fruit is a testament to the power of art to create positive change in the world.
