You May Be Tempted To Pay $10 For This Piece Of Fruit!
First there were the curvy cucumbers, then came heart-shaped watermelons and now . . . Baby Buddha shaped pears.
The funky-shaped fruit was developed by Gao Xianzhang, a Chinese farmer in Hebia, Northern China, who decided to create the exotic-looking fruit, after he noticed people paying extra for odd-shaped watermelons.
It took him six years to develop the perfectly shaped mold, inside which these pears grow, but it definitely seems worth it. Despite the hefty price tag of $10USD per pear, they have been extremely popular in his village, where people consider them good-luck charms.
Maybe some day he will be able to grow enough to send to other parts of the world too!
