Buddha Shaped Pears



You've seen square watermelon and even heart shaped cucumbers, but Buddha pears? They are made with a cool plastic mold that is attached while they are still little. I'd love to say more about them, but I don't speak Spanish Portuguese, so I can't read the original site. Any of you Neatorama readers care to help translate?

Not even a spanish guy can read the original post.. that's because it's portuguese hehe

And Brazil's capital is Brasilia, not Rio de Janeiro :-P

I think this is the strangest "how to" i have ever posted here because, in the end, who's going to attempt to do this at home? Well then, just for kicks, if you have already heard about the pears in the shape of buddha or even the famous square watermelons of Japan, know that the process is simple, it's enough to place a mold around the fruits when they are budding, since fruit tends to take the shape of the mold as it is developing.

I am afraid of what advertisers can do with this.

I want a pear shaped like Mario. And one shaped like Bowser.

I will make them battle.

The loser will be eaten.

And the winner will also be eaten.

I agree. Wonderful, Jake D. Just had a grin for the first three lines, then the end I burst out with an involuntary giggle when I got to the end.

No, it's not a religious thing at all. I have to agree with Babycakes. If these were Allah pears, there'd be riots throughout the Middle East. If they were Jesus pears, there'd be reams of stern letters-to-the-editor.

I think Buddhists are way more easygoing about their icons than other religions.

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!!!
They're gonna cut the peaches and eat 'em or worship 'em or let 'em rot??
Mad guys!!
Nice experiment though! We're gonna have new moldy ideas from now.. A peach shaped like a Mango or Banana or Wall-E :p

Anyone been on that boat ride at Epcot where they take you through their greenhouse? They've got all these vegetables that are grown in the air with Mickey Mouse ears - creepy.

translated to portuguese it reads:

How to make pear-shaped Buddhas

I think this is the strangest "How to" I've posted, I mean, who's going to try and make this at home? Well then, for curiosity's sake, if you've already heard of Buddha shaped pears or even the famous square watermelons of Japan, you know that it's a simple process, placing the fruits in a mold while they are growing, then the fruit tends to take on the form of the mold.

I'm afraid of what marketing people will do with this...

but you are not eating the buddha; you are eating a representation of the buddha.

canibalism would be just nasty!

that said, i'd grow these babies; are they selling them online somewhere?
