Fruit Carving and Fruit Art Will Impress Your Guests and Adds a Mark of Distinction to a Table of Food

Fruit art is the art of taking something ordinary like an apple or a watermelon and turning it into a work of art that has an arresting presence. An apple that bears the resemblance of a swan. A watermelon transformed into a rose or cactus flower. 

Without a doubt one of the go to people to learn the art of fruit carving is Mutita over at YouTube. She has many great tutorials three of which I include here. An apple swan, a rose flower watermelon and a watermelon cactus flower.

In addition to the videos I have included some pictures of fruit and vegetable art below to help fire up your imagination and give you a nudge in the right direction. Happy fruit carving!
