A farmer that grows Buddha shaped pears.

 The farmer hails from the village of Hexia, in Hebia, northern China, and has spend six years perfecting his method. By using a plastic mold, Hao Xianzhang grows pears in the shape of Buddha. The baby pears grow inside a clear Buddha-shaped mold, and are plucked from the tree in the shape of a tiny seated Buddha. From the top of the figure's head extends the pear's stem which the farmer has opted to leave attached, perhaps as an indicator that this is in fact still a fruit.So far he's made about 10,000 of the fruits, and locals are eagerly forking out about $8 for the deity-shaped treats. The inventor has plans to export his idea to Europe.
