Um, What?

I love cucumbers. I have them on my salad quite often, and the Sultan and I use them when prepping many of our dinners. But what on earth is THIS?

Apparently an agriculture co-op made of nine women in the Japanese suburb of Chiba created what we now know as the cucumber mold. The group attaches the plastic mold to the stem of the cucumber plant, thus creating heart-shaped or star-shaped cucumbers. Um, what?

They're only $80. Heh.
