Imagine how much fun it would be to eat a salad and find a heart shaped cucumber or a star shaped tomato?
It would have the same excitement as eating a bowl of Lucky Charms, but on the healthier version!
Vegetable Mold/ Mould
Zayinsoft, was the first company out of Europe that has created plastic molds in the shape of hearts and stars.
Where to buy it?
You can buy it online, as a unique gift ideas for your loved one. You can now find it on eBay, Amazon, etc
How to use it?
You simply attach the mold around the wire or stick holding the fruit. Put the mould/mold around the entire vegetable and after a few days growing to weeks, your vegetable will start transforming itself into the shape of the mold.
I admit that could be fun. You can even make buddha shape pears with it.
That can even get different shapes for your entire produce.
When the vegetable is ready to be harvested, remove the mold and enjoy!
The molds are hung via a twist-tie for vegetables like cucumbers and tomatoes.
These veggie molds have two/three-fold action.
a) Give and maintain desired shape.
b) help protect against bugs.
b) Keep and protect the vegetables against severe frosty weather.
You do have to be gentle when attaching to tomatoes, because they fall off the stem very easily.
Other shaped molds/moulds
These molds would be a great science experiment for kids and adults – you can actually find similar technologies or even invent yours.
I bet they will enjoy new ways to eat more fruits vegetables !
