Chinese farmer grows 'Buddha-shaped pears'
A farmer named Hao Xianzhang in China has been growing pears that are shaped like 'Buddha.'
Xianzhang, who spent 6 years perfecting the method by growing the fruit inside molds, said that his pears were high in demand because they symbolized "good luck," ABC News reported.
To grow the pears in shape, the farmer put the pears while they were little in the molds, and when they took up the space inside the case, he would remove the molds, letting the fruits develop further on their own.
Xianzhang, who has priced the 10,000 pears he grew in his backyard at 8 dollars per fruit, added that he was inspired by an old Chinese myth about a magical fruit shaped as Buddha, which claimed to give immortality.
