This Crazy Tree Grows 40 Kinds of Fruit | National Geographic

Sam Van Aken, an artist and professor at Syracuse University, uses "chip grafting" to create trees that each bear 40 different varieties of stone fruits, or fruits with pits.

Over several years he adds slices of branches from other varieties to the working tree. In the spring...

Hunting Wild Mushrooms in Vermont

Mushrooms have gotten a bad rap. Sure, some are poisonous and hallucinogenic, but America's palate for mushrooms is generally bland. When it comes to edible fungi, we only focus on a few varieties. But Ari Rockland-Miller and Jenna Antonino DiMare hope to change that. These mushroom educators and hunters are on a mission to spread the joys of foraging, and open up our palates to a wider variety of mushrooms.

See a NASA Physicist's Incredible Origami

Twenty five years ago, physicist Robert Lang worked at NASA, where he researched lasers.

Watch a Train Run Through Thailand’s Most Dangerous Market

In Samut Songkhram, about an hour outside Bangkok, is Maeklong Railway Market, one of the largest produce and seafood markets in Thailand. But beyond the selection of fresh fruit and fish, the market has become infamous for one thing—the train that runs directly through it. In 1905, the Maeklong Railway built a commuter train line through the center of the popular market. But rather than move, the vendors adapted to the new conditions, working around the train that passes through eight times a day, seven days a week.

This is the World's Loneliest Tree

Tucked away in a corner of London's Royal Botanic Gardens, there is a very peculiar plant. At first glance, it resembles a stumpy palm tree, but this ancient specimen is incredibly rare.

Over the millennia, the age of the cycad came to an end. And in the case of Encephalartos Woodii, we may have been left with only one—a single male specimen.
