Make musical instruments—out of fruits and veggies!

The Viennese Vegetable Orchestra may be the world’s weirdest group of musicians. All of their instruments are carved out of vegetables and fruit! From pumpkin drums to celery guitars, each instrument is made fresh for each performance. Audiences enjoy the unique sounds of whistling carrot flutes, crackling onion skin, squawking red pepper horns, and more. At the end of the performance, fresh vegetable soup is served!

Here's how you can make your own musical fruits and veggies.
