Fruits that have a circular shape such as apple, orange, watermelon, coconut, lemon, lime, melon, mango, pineapple, kiwi, or even a pumpkin, can be easily converted into a natural tobacco bowl and give an unexpected fruity burst of flavor to your final steam, creating a healthy variation of hookah smoking.

Procedure for the Fresh Hookah Fruit Head

The concept is simple: You cut the fruit into a shape that serves as a hookah bowl, place it so that it fits perfectly in the opening of the pipe and fill it with the tobacco of your choice to start the smoking process, as you would with a common hookah bowl. It is a completely ecological process that is totally harmless to your health. Using a fruit for a bowl can significantly extend the duration of your smoking session, without having a detrimental effect on your health. That is why many people use it as an alternative without regrets and with numerous imaginative methods.

How do I make a natural hookah fruit bowl?

The process for the natural Shisha fruit bowl may be a little more complicated than a simple ceramic Hookah tobacco bowl, but it really is worth the effort!

We will use the example of an orange. In general, it is good to prefer fruits with hard skin, as you can shape them more easily, and they fit better and do not dissolve during the smoking session.

  • Using an apple core removal tool, carefully remove the core from the bottom of the fruit. Make sure that the opening is large enough to fit the size of the hook stem as accurately as possible.
  • With a knife, cut 1/3 of the top of the apple like a “cap” and remove it.
  • With the same knife and with the help of a spoon, start carving around the perimeter and removing the fleshy inside of the fruit, forming a small bowl with “walls” of at least 1cm thickness.
  • Using an absorbent paper, dry the inside part of the apple to absorb any excess juice left from the walls. If you want a fruitier taste in your tobacco, you can skip this step.
  • To avoid smoke loss, align the hole you made at the base of the apple with a small square piece of aluminum foil, large enough to cover the size of it. Make small holes with a toothpick in the foil to help the hookah smoke pass through.
  • Then carefully place the bowl of apple on the hook stem trying to “fasten” as firmly as possible to the tube and create a secure seal. If it is too loose and does not fit properly, then wrap a layer of paper towel around the stem and reapply until it seals securely.

Your bowl is now ready to be filled with the Shisha Tobacco or flavor of your choice, just as you would work with a regular bowl. Try not to “squeeze” the filling into the fruit bowl so that the air has the freedom to circulate inside.
