Fruit Cocktail Tree (I want one...)

Ah, these are so cool!

Obviously that first photo is a joke, but the idea isn't! There are real trees that are grafted to grow different kinds of fruit on the same tree. There are restrictions, for example, you can't mix apples and peaches. Most commonly, fruits of the same categories can be grown together- citrus, stone fruits, apple and pear varieties, etc...

Apparently, they also come in dwarf form, which makes them great for urban gardening because you can fit them into pots. This might be my next gardening experiment!
