Farmer Hao’s Amazing Pears

In Hebei, China, farmer Hao Xianzhang has successfully created and sold buddha-shaped pears. Inspired by the book Journey to the West, in which eating baby-shaped fruit leads to immortality. Hao attached a mold to the fruit for six months to give the fruit its unique shape.


Hao is eager to appeal to western tastes and would like to produce pears in the shape of celebrities. I would like to see a major fruit grower like Del Monte pick us this technique to brand their fruit without the use of stickers or laser tattooing. What a great way to promote and brand a fruit company.
