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.
Have a pear tree? Psych out your neighbours with chubby mini Buddha heads dangling from the branches.
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
