Hi I'm Tricia, an organic gardener. I grow organically for a healthy and safe food supply, for a clean and sustainable environment, for an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I love fruit, all kinds of fruit but it can be troublesome to grow all the plants with all the different cultural requirements. So why not grow all the fruit on one tree, this is a fruit salad or Kaizetsu tree as it's called in its native Japan. The tree produces oranges, mangoes, bananas, apples, peaches and more even avocados i never quite know what this tree is going to produce look at this we have a watermelon coming out of the suckers of the tree, last year I got a crop of prickly pears. Oh these trees can be really difficult to find and to grow but they're worth it. In order to germinate, the seeds need to be planted when Saturn, Venus and Neptune are conjunct on a Tuesday in April at precisely five forty two in the afternoon. You need to have a special app or an atomic watch because the timing needs to be exact the trees are very sensitive to celestial vibrations. The seeds must be planted one hang loose deep if your hang loose is my size. These trees are native to Yagashiri Island and are normally hardy to zone seven but their hardy to zone four on weekends and holidays and all throughout the month of May This tree is six years old and they begin to bear fruit at four years old but only if you sing it a lullaby every third Thursday at sunset. My tree loves the lullaby Hushaby. (singing) In order to get plentiful and varied fruits I like to foliar feed my tree with organic free range mouse tears. Pests of the fruit salad tree are a concern, they've actually never been spotted but according to theoretical physics they must exist. I find circling the tree three times clockwise wearing a Marie Antoinette wig and singing the Marseille's is the best way to ward off these pests. Enjoy this challenging and rewarding tree and April Fools!

That was cute!  It helps gardeners to laugh at themselves about all the various concerns we have about planting—which zones, etc. But deep down, don’t we all wish that there was such a tree?!

Does it self-pollinate?

Wait, is that 5:42 PM local time or Greenwich time?

I can’t sing La Marseillaise in French but I can sing Oh Canada in Portuguese, will that work?

What a gas. The best part is watching Tricia on the verge of busting out laughing at several points.

What did you do with the prickly pear last year?  I suppose it has something to do with why the mouse was crying those free range tears… Hmmm…  :-D
