Not many things wow me any more but this certainly did. This is an invention that helps you shape fruits into all manner of different shapes, heart shaped strawberries, melons as cubes, star shaped cucumber, even a mould that makes a pear in the shape of Buddha!
These ultra simple range of fruit and veg moulds simply constrain the fruit to grow into a specific shape, simply encase the young fruit in the mould and let nature do the rest. In a matter of months you could be wowing your loved one with heart shaped strawberries, dazzling your friends and family with salad decorated with star shaped cucumber.
It’s easy to think these fruit pictures have had a good dose of photoshop but they are real, in Japan people are paying a fortune to buy square watermelons, one company in China (Fruit Mold) seems to have taken the whole concept to a whole new level growing Donald Trump shaped Pumpkins.
Ok so many better connected people may be saying this is soooo old, but me being a wrinkly person who spends more time in the garden than online, to me this is fresh out of the box so to speak.
All the same if you fancy trying to grow heart shaped strawberries or star shaped cucumber take a look at this products I’ve found over at Amazon.
No matter what you grow in what shape, just get growing. Get some seeds and give it a go, we all need to be growing more fruit and veg ourselves, it helps us, the planet in fact everyone.
Ok I know these fruits are grown in plastic molds but if it means people get into growing their own fruit and veg then it must be a good thing. Gardening is such a rewarding activity for all ages, waiting for seeds to appear is like having a mini Christmas morning everyday.
