By spring time, the ‘Tree of 40 Fruit’ sprouts purple and pink blossoms while in summer the tree starts bearing fruits of all kinds. Van Aken said, “Part of the idea behind the Tree of 40 Fruit was to plant them in locations that people would stumble upon them. And once they happened upon one of these trees, they would start to question ‘Why are the leaves shaped differently?’ ‘Why are they different colors?’”Tree of 40 Fruit Is Real

A large number of these trees have been planted throughout the US.
