Casorzo, Italy

Bialbero di Casorzo

A cherry tree growing atop a mulberry tree 

Edit Place

A very unusual tree grows in the town of Grana, Italy, or rather, an unusual pair of trees.

It consists of a cherry tree growing on top of a mulberry tree, creating a kind of two-tiered, two-species hybrid duplex.

While it's not uncommon for a small tree to grow on a larger one, it is rare to see two fully grown trees in such an unusual configuration. Nonetheless, the arrangement appears to be working well for both individuals, as the cherry tree on top bears lovely white flowers.
