A project of his, the 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. Van Aken, who tells Epicurious that he grew up on a farm, uses a technique called grafting to combine the similar fruit types onto a single tree. Van Akens trees are certainly designed more for the art of their blooming, but theres a preservation element that hes bringing in to it too. Van Aken says that he tries to include local fruits on each of his trees, as well as varieties that arent commercially available.
