In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit the Tree of 40 Fruits in San Jose, California, a horticultural marvel and living work of art in which 40 types of stone fruit trees have been grafted together to form a living work of art.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
