Buddha Pears

Buddha Pears

Something almost magical happened when a clever Chinese farmer took a very Zen approach to growing ordinary fruit. He created tiny praying Buddhas out of pears by encasing the young pears in molds while they’re still on the tree. As they grow they have no choice but to take the shape of the spiritual figure. Currently the Buddha pears are sold locally, but the farmer plans to spread the love worldwide. While it would be fun to grab one, it must be something all together amazing to see an orchid of pear trees growing hundreds of tiny Buddhas.
