Today, I’d like to show you photos of whimsical, wacky and fun vegetable and fruit carvings. Why? Well, March is National Nutrition Month so, naturally, I think vegetables and fruits should be in the spotlight!

I thought it would be fun to recognize March Nutrition Month by showing the playful side of vegetable and fruit carvings.

If you’ve got kids in your life who are reluctant to eat their fruits and vegetables, this ideas might be fun for them.

I will be showing you some wacky vegetable and fruit carvings that have been sent to me from unknown sources, and then I’ll show you a few really cute carvings and arrangements by my very creative readers/customers. Whether you’ve got kids or not, these carvings are fun. Enjoy!

Wild and Wacky Vegetable and Fruit Carvings

Here are some vegetable and fruit carvings that are just plain fun and clever.

Banana Vegetable and Fruit Carvings

I was really impressed with the banana carving above. I seldom carve bananas because of their soft texture and the fact that they brown easily. This artist did a great job! The next one is a cute idea, too.

Zucchini Vegetable Fruit Carvings

Zucchini slippers!

Ballet slippers can also be carved from cucumbers, too. At home, you could add some salad to the inside of the shoes and serve them to that aspiring young ballerina in your life. Or use as a centerpiece for a vegetable tray. Either way, edible ballet shoes would be fun and unexpected.

This next carving really got my attention because it is just so original. I really like the use of red pepper, kiwi peel and orange peel to add detail to the shoe.

This is a wonderful display that shows off Nahed’s creativity. The squash ducks were Nahed’s own idea; the beet and turnip roses are taught in my Hearts and Roses Video lessons.

Actually, vegetable and fruit carvings don’t have to be complicated. Sometimes it’s just fun to play around with carving and creating with produce. If you’ve got kids in your life, they might also find it fun to build fun things with fruits and vegetables.

If you liked the photos from this post, I think you’ll really enjoy my earlier post about a food trade show in Brazil that features some really creative and original vegetable and fruit carvings:

You’ll see some really clever and whimsical vegetable and fruit carvings in that post. You’ll see that some carvings can certainly be complicated, while others are amusing in how the fruits and vegetables are arranged and may not require any carving at all.

Hopefully, this will motivate you to have a little fun coming up with your own whimsical vegetable and fruit carvings or arrangements!
