When I first read this story I thought it must be a miss-timed April Fools. Or at least some kind of Halloween mutant tree story. But no.
This tree has been spliced and grafted together to create a Fruit Salad Tree that grows up to six different varieties of fruits all at once.
Peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots and peachcots and even oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit can all grow together on this one tree.
All fruits retain their own individuality, with staggered ripening times.
Farmers James and Kerry West have spent 20 years working on these trees and they are now ready to buy and plant anywhere in the world. They’re based in New England, New South Wales, Australia.
Who said urban gardeners can’t grow a complete fruit salad on their windowsill eh?
