Tree of 40 Fruit ~ Van Aken's Art+Graft+Growth!

Thanks to io9's Ria Misra for spotting the Tree of 40 Fruit...
"An ongoing series of hybridized fruit trees by contemporary artist Sam Van Aken. Each unique Tree of 40 Fruit grows over forty different types of stone fruit including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and almonds. Sculpted through the process of grafting, the Tree of 40 Fruit blossom in variegated tones of pink, crimson and white in spring, and in summer bear a multitude of fruit."
