The European Vegetable Carving Competition just held in Leipzig, Germany, had room for fruit carvers as well.
According to the Times of Malta, "Each participant is provided with a basket containing melons, giant papayas, kohlrabi, cucumbers, radishes, Chinese cabbages and carrots. Participants may bring their own pumpkin, too.
The art of vegetable carving originated in China but has acquired numerous followers in Europe in recent years."
