Chip-Grafted Tree with 40 Varieties

After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree (which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old) that you can see if full bloom above.
