Baby Buddha-Shaped Pears

A Chinese farmer has invented baby Buddha-shaped pears and he plans to take the fruits to the UK and Europe. If the idea catches on, sales of the mini pears could hit the profits of British farmers who are already struggling to fend off sales of cheaper foreign produce in recession-hit Britain.

Gao spent six years perfecting the intricate baby Buddha-shaped pears, carefully crafting each one which grows inside an individual mold. Despite their hefty cost of £5 each, locals in his home village of Hexia, in Hebia, northern China, have reportedly been snapping them up.

‘People seem to think they are cute or lucky and will buy them as soon as they’re off the tree,’ Gao explained .
