Buddha-shaped pears growing on a tree. The shape is produced with a new kind of plastic mould.
Moulds let gardeners shape their fruit while they grow.
Because pear-shaped pears and round melons were getting old, a Chinese entrepreneur decided to create moulds that allow gardeners with green thumbs to grow Buddha-shaped pears, square watermelons and cucumbers in the form of hearts.
The concept is simple, and the result quirky: While the fruit or vegetable is still young and small, gardeners simply encase them in plastic moulds and watch as they fill out.

The moulds, which are made in China, can also create heart-shaped apples, tomatoes and watermelons, star-shaped cucumbers as well as square-edged melons – a form that makes for easier cutting.
Fruit Moulds ship worldwide and range from US$1 to US$18 (RM3-RM57). – AFP Relaxnews
