 In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with
 a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe,
 and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way.
 How did the pear get inside the bottle? The pear grew
 inside the bottle. The bottles are placed over pear
 buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the
 tree. The bottle is left in place for the whole growing
 season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off
 at the stems.
