Gao Xianzhang has managed to create what some would call the holiest fruits ever, pears shaped like Buddha.

Gao has been working on his pear-growing technique for six years and this season he managed to grow 10,000 Buddha-shaped baby pears.

Each fruit is grown in an intricate Buddha mould and ends up looking like a juicy figurine.

The ingenious farmer says the locals in his home village of Hexia, northern China, have been buying his Buddha pears as soon as he picks them from the trees.

Most of them think they are cute and that they bring good luck.
