Chinese farmer Hao Xianzhang has perfected the process of growing pears inside Buddha shaped plastic molds.
Each pear shaped like Buddha costs around 50 yuan ($7.32 USD).

I would totally love to eat the head off of a pear-buddha… Yum!
OMG! I love this! So cute!!!
i hate pears…… but i want to eat it!
Charging $7USD for a Buddha-shaped pear is asking for bad karma though…
Very unique idea! Perhaps a dragon next???

wooow that’s great. I didn’t know it could be possible.
2Buddha: yes, your are right - eating Buddha is a bad carma.
But anyway it is a very nice idea. If produce pears of 5 elements’ shape according to chinese doctrines it will help people to get the best of the luck.
Curious and creative idea! Love it.
very innovative idea that is sure to reap rich dividends and much fame for mr hao.
how much is $7.32 in pounds?
omg its sooo cute :D
Here's your sign
@Graydian: A simple google search returns: 7.32USD = 4.59GBP
I think that a mold would be a good alternative to pesticides. and why not Buddha?
Those are really cute.
Incredible! Hao did he do it?
I don’t know if I’m hungrier for pears or Buddhism.
Now Buddha can become one with you!

If you meet the buddha on the road, kill him.
Or, just eat him, I suppose.
Especially if he’s green and juicy.

This is just so amazing… and such a reasonable price! I’d for sure buy a baby buddha-pear! Fabulous!

The pears are nice but I wonder if this guy knows that the real money is in patenting the molds and manufacturing them for export? I’d love to have a mold for my apple tree.
