Would you eat a pear shaped like a chunky baby? You could if you lived in China where they place special clear plastic molds around the fruits of the trees while they are growing. The pears then grow into the shape of a little baby. The pears supposedly have the same nutritional value and taste as regular- uhmmm- pear-shaped pears do they just look like little edible babies. Hopefully you don’t need to peel them cause that looks tricky.
