From the January 1941 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Three trees are figuratively portrayed in the Scriptures: one that grew in the garden of Eden, bearing two kinds of fruit—good and evil; one, as described by the Psalmist, that grew by rivers, which had leaves that did not wither, and brought forth its fruits in its season; and also "the tree of life," which appeared to St. John in a vision and which bore "twelve manner of fruits," and yielded her fruit every month.
