It's like an entire fruit aisle in one tree.

I especially like that the artist used traditional grafting techniques, rather than genetic modification.

[T]he "Tree of 40 Fruit," has Van Aken grafting 40 different stone fruit
branches onto a single tree, ultimately creating a tree that will slowly
begin blooming at the beginning of spring and continue through the
season as different varieties hit their marks. Come summer, those will
all begin to grow fruits, including different types of cherries,
peaches, plums, nectarines, and apricots.
