There is some fakery going on here, though I cannot say for sure what it is. They obviously do this so they can sell them for more money:

Maybe, Root carving:

It could be that too.
I tried finding info on how they do it, but have yet to find anything outside the root carving link. I am sure its a local scam that is handed down to farmers in the area. We may never find out the exact way through the net.

Actually, sure as shoot, as soon as I typed that I found it.
Here you go:
