    Pears.

These ingenious moulds grow fruit and veg into bizarre shapes - including little Buddha pears and square watermelons.
China-based Fruit Mould Co is behind the crazy contraptions and have been commissioned worldwide to help people make odd-shaped produce.
Its website says: 'Fruit Mould Co., Ltd specialises in creating one of a kind, high quality fruit and vegetable moulds to transform regular fruits into wacky and weird shapes that you've never seen before.
'Imagine square watermelons, heart-shaped cucumbers and Buddha shaped pears.' 
The moulds work by farmers placing them over the stems of growing produce and then allowing the fruit and veg to slowly fill them as they develop.
Some moulds are even designed so there can be words put on the items - including heart shaped apples with the word 'love' across them.
The company, based in Suzhou, Jiangsu, eastern China, even offers custom designs through its website.
