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.”
