Prayer pears

A Chinese farmer has taken fruit moulding to new heights with these Buddha shaped pears.

” This year, he harvested more than 10,000 baby-shaped pears and sold them for the equivalent of £5 each.

Gao said: “I noticed people were selling shaped water melons for a good price, so I thought of doing something similar with my pears.

“It was more difficult than I expected. You have to test when the best time is to put the moulds on the pears is, and when to take them off again.”

Binge fruit eating

I’m not a big fruit eater. There are many days where my recommended daily healthy food intake is all vegetable no fruit. There are many days where it’s neither.

When I do eat fruit I go on fruit binges. A month or so ago it was bananas. I ate about six in one day. I didn’t feel very well.

This week it’s watermelon. We had just watermelon for dinner one night. And I’ve had watermelon (and only watermelon) for lunch four days this week.

I’m worried I’ll end up looking like this previously featured watermelon head.

Are there serious health concerns that come from eating too much watermelon?
