In the spring and summer, the trees produce a lot of amazing harvest of fruit that you wouldn’t expect from a normal tree. Sam Van Aken is a sculptor that dreams of creating a new type of tree that produces 40 different kinds of fruit and has let everyone dazzled.
Professor Van Aken way of making the tree that produces 40 different kinds of fruit
Art and technology are the two different sides that have a lot of things in common. Innovations preceded having a big problem with the changes in the art world and allowed artists to find new ways of expressing them selfs. Professor Van Aken took this idea even further and used a simple technique of grafting and turned it into something awesome.
The perfect tree that produces 40 different kinds of fruit
The colors of the are breathtaking, as each fruit has a different time that it blossoms. What appears to be just another tree during the winter, turns into an explosion of colors during the spring and summer. The professor grew up on a farm and had a lot of botanical knowledge before going into the arts courier.
Sam saw an opportunity to preserve this orchard that contained antique varieties of stone fruit. Some of them were more than 200 years old and would become extinct if no one took care of them. In order to save these valuable trees, he bought the property. This was the starting point of a project that occupied his mind for the next eight years. He was now a proud owner of more than 250 different sorts of stone fruit, but this amount of trees required some sort of organization.
The timeline when the tree blossoms and shows the starting point of the 40 different kinds of fruit
Professor Van Aken has developed a timeline of the periods in which each tree in his newly acquired orchard blossomed and begun combing a few of them in order to see what results he would get. Its main idea is to take a bit of fruit tree that has a bud and then stick it to the stump of another tree. Plums, nectarines, cherries, peaches, almonds and apricots are just a few different kinds of stone fruit Sam used.
