Melons have been grown into unnatural square shapes in Japan for 40 years and if you think that goes against the laws of nature, you're in for a wild ride. China is producing baby-resembling pears they're sometimes referring to as Buddha pears.
When the fruit is still small, a plastic mold is placed around it to encourage baby form. The company that creates these molds also make square, heart, star, and other shapes for apples, tomatoes, and watermelons. They ship worldwide so you can grow your own baby-shaped fruit.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
