Tree of Forty Fruits

Syracuse artist Sam van Aken was interviewed on NPR this morning. His current project involves creating grafted trees that produce 40 types of plums, apricots, almonds, peaches, nectarines, and cherries. Initially he was interested in the multicolor blooms but once he realized how many heirloom and experimental varieties of fruit are threatened with extinction, his focus shifted to getting these trees spread across the country.
