He added: “When the tree unexpectedly blossoms in different colors, or you see these different fruits hanging from its branches, it not only changes the way you look at it, but it changes the way you perceive (things) in general.” 

He told that the tree is unnatural as it was made through the multi-fruit trees chip grafting method. 

Sam discovers around New York State every year in February where he picks 12-18″ inch parts from different stone fruit trees. He chooses this specific diversity due to their special capabilities. 

When spring season comes, the buds begin to settle and become fresh after the pieces are tangled together. 

Meanwhile, this outcome in new grafting in the tree turning every branch into different kinds of fruits. After the process completion, the color-coding practice takes place on white paper that develops an indicator to decide which fruit will grow on which branch. 

It is worth mentioning that every tree has its own fruit types that are picked on basis of color and its bloom. 

The report further discloses that Sam’s “Tree of 40 Fruit” will be having six different types of plums together with peach, three apricots, and two nectarines. Approximately five years will be engaged for the production process of different fruits on each tree.
