Carvable Foam Fruit

Does anyone know of anywhere I can get some carvable foam fruit like watermelons, similar to the funkins/Michael's craft pumpkins? Just interested and would love to find some.

I'm at a loss. The only carvables here in Ontario
are the Michael's pumpkins.

I've heard of carvable easter eggs, but not watermelons or other fruit. I would LOVE to see foam watermelons, as well as something for christmas like carvable christmas ornaments or snowballs or something. I'd love to do this year round!

Actually, last year, I took 3 white kins, took 3 metal rods and created a snowman with a hat and a scarf, I used transparent colored discs for buttons, carved a face, Michaels plastic carrot for a nose, and Michaels artifical sticks for arms. Placed lights inside, lit up nicely. White kins can really let you go wild with your imagination.
