Magical Tree of 40 fruits

Giving Life to old trees

A New York state orchard with stone fruit trees 200 years old was about to be abandoned due to lack of funding.  San Van Aken a contemporary artist stepped in to preserve the heirloom, antique and native varieties that are no longer commercially produced.

Through grafting and sculpturing he was able to create his magical tree of 40 fruit.   Spring blossoms burst into colors of pink, crimson and white. In the summer July through October it produces 40 types of fruit.
