  3. claudine

    OMG! I love this! So cute!!!

  4. sarah

    i hate pears…… but i want to eat it!

    Charging $7USD for a Buddha-shaped pear is asking for bad karma though…

  6. Karin Stewart

    Very unique idea! Perhaps a dragon next???

  7. Paul Sample

    wooow that’s great. I didn’t know it could be possible.

  8. Ding Yang

    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.

    I think that a mold would be a good alternative to pesticides. and why not Buddha?

  15. Kristi Gilleland

  16. Bob Klein

  18. Chad

  26. ozii

    god bless photoshop…

  27. tony

    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!

  30. Jean Valjean

    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.
