This cheeky fruit seller from the city of Nanjing in eastern China has come up with a peach of an idea to flog his goods.
Businessman Yao Yuan thought his online fruit business had reached rock bottom until he came up with the brainwave of dressing the fruits in miniature sexy knickers.
Now he has seen sales soar - despite charging 50 GBP for a punnet of nine.
"Well, peaches and women's bottoms look so similar I thought why not? It's not something I've ever seen anyone else doing. I can't grow enough of them to keep up with the demand," Yao explained.
A Chinese lingerie firm runs up the miniature panties and Yao's fruit pickers in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, dress each one by hand.
"The people who supply our pants make lingerie for some of the most exclusive designer labels in the world.
"There's nothing tacky about them at all," said Yao.
"Some of them are black and lacy, some are thongs. We cover all tastes and we can do special commissions too.
"We had one special client who wanted all nine peaches wearing leather knickers with studs and chains.
"There's nothing we'd be too embarrassed to handle," he added.
This weekend - when China celebrates Qixi festival, the country's version of Valentine's Day - sales are expected to go through roof.
"They're sweet, tasty, sexy and funny. It's the perfect present," said Yao.
