Sam Van Akan, a professor at the University of Art in New York has managed to create an unusual tree. The peculiarity of this unique type of tree is that it is able to produce 40 different types of stone fruits. In this connection, the tree is named „Tree of 40 fruits.“
It is well known that, for example, the plum can grow up only on a plum tree, the cherry – on the cherry tree and the almond – on the almond tree. But the professor was able to reconcile the irreconcilable and grew 40 different fruits on one tree. The unique tree bears fruits every year with a generous harvest and when it blooms, it’s seems unlikely because there are different flower shapes, colors and shades.
The professor began the experiments with unique tree in 2008 when he learned that after 150-200 years some of the oldest stone fruits may disappear forever from the face of the Earth. In creating this project the author has been helped by a special method for breeding and cross-breeding of plants with roots and buds.
The professor does not intend to stop here. He wants to plant these trees in the whole country.
