There was a time when you needed to visit several different trees in order to get that perfect bowl of fresh fruit salad. Now there’s one tree that makes things a lot more efficient by holding up to 8 different kinds of fruits.
It’s rightly called the “Fruit Salad Tree.” The Fruit Salad Tree Company (yes there actually is a Fruit Salad Tree Company) created it with the use of an asexual plant propagation technique known as gafting whereby tissues from one plant are inserted into those of another so that the two sets of vascular tissues may join together.
There are four types of Fruit Salad Trees; stonefruit (which grow peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, and peachcots), citrus (which grows oranges, mandarins, lemons, limes, grapefruit), multi-apples only, and multi-nashi fruit only. And here you thought that prepackaging was impressive!
