The gourds are not supposed to
have faces which make the fruit on this tree particularly
interesting. It's also a bit freaky to see the same face on
every single gourd that is growing on the tree. Was someone
cursed? Is the tree cursed? Or is there a simple explanation?
Most likely the later, but entertaining all the same. Apparently
the tree is a native of Brazil.
"Hey Jim, was looking
through the gallery and noticed your post on the bottle gourd
tree. It is in fact caused by placing a mold on the
fruit/vegetable when it is growing, and removing it once the
desired shape is achieved. There is a guy that is making money
by making pears into Buddha shapes. Crazy things they do these
days. Here's a picture of showing the process."
