Believe it or not, a tree that grows 40 different types of fruit is growing among students and staff at the University of Syracuse.

Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts Sculpture Professor Sam Van Aken is responsible for the unique tree.

He uses a technique called "chip grafting" that allows the tree to produce the different types of fruit.

Watch the National Geographic video of Professor Aken, who's planted dozens of the trees around the U.S.
