Fruitful Meditation

Apparently it is pretty Zen to play with your food!
Of course, I don't know if it is good karma to eat a pear that looks like Buddha, but it is definitely cool to see!

The Buddha pears were invented by a Chinese farmer, Gao Xianzhang, who has already grown 10,000 of these spiritual fruits which he plans on selling in Europe and the UK.
Gao spent six years perfecting the intricate baby-shaped pears, carefully crafting each one which grows inside an individual mould. 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.
