Worlds 10 Most Expensive Fruits | Luxury Gift Giving

We hear of people spending large sums of money on bags, shoes, cars and clothes but did you know some people will pay huge amounts of money on fruit.

1. Buddha Shaped Pears - Price = $8 to $9 each

Nowadays we can produce pears that look exactly like fat little buddhas, complete with folded arms, plump tummies, and meditative smiles. The secret is a plastic mold made by China’s Fruit Mould Company, a manufacturing group that also sells supplies for making heart-shaped watermelons, star-shaped cucumbers, apples with gnomish faces, and sultry peaches shaped like human behinds.

A farmer in China has successfully grown pears in the shape of Buddha, and they are in high demand by customers.

Xianzhang Hao from China’s Hebei province grew 10,000 of these “Buddha pears” in his backyard, and now he is selling them for $8 each.

“These pears are really popular because they represent good luck,” Hao told Sina China.

Hao said he got the idea from an old Chinese myth about a magic fruit in the shape of Buddha. Whoever ate that rare fruit would gain immortality.
