Sam Van Aken’s Tree of 40 Fruit

Found this information several years ago and the voices in my head still talk about it.

So the voice in my head says:

‘Why are there so many different trees? There should be one tree that bears all of my favorite fruit! Why does there have to be an apple tree, an orange tree, a mango tree, etc.?’



OK. There was no voice in my head that said that. The thought never even crossed my mind. Somebody else thought of it. A tree that bears 40 different fruit. FORTY???!!!

Sam Van Aken is an artist who believes he can make his imagination become real by using grafting. He plans to use stone fruits like apples, peaches, and plums.
Excerpt: “Sam Van Aken envisions a tree with blooms of pink, purple, fuchsia and red that bears 40 different kinds of fruit.”
You gotta see this tree!!!

Keeping It Rosy!

Found a wonderful article at an online writing community that taught me many wonderful things there are to know about roses.

Did you know roses could be eaten?  Learned that reading another article.  Yes there are many edible flowers.  But never thought about eating a rose.

  • FACT: “Roses have been used in cooking for thousands of years and they continue to be a staple in Bulgaria, Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia, Iran, and northern India.”
Who knew?
