Disturbing baby-shaped pears grown in China

Baby shaped pears

I’m ok with butt peaches, but I’m not so sure how I feel about pears grown to look like babies. Somehow biting into one would just seem wrong. Well, this isn’t stopping Chinese farms from growing pears shaped and selling them in the supermarkets. While the pears are still small enough, a mold is clamped onto the fruit and the pear will naturally grow into the mold’s shape. Can’t we just stick to regular-shaped fruits?

    This is probably in reference to the mythical fruits ??? in the wildly popular archaic Chinese novel Journey to the West. The protagonists were hosted by a deity figure and were served those fruits, which looked like little babies.
