Southeast Asia is home to many varieties of fruits, each with a unique flavour and texture. While these fruits are delectable, they are also associated with myths our ancestors came up with many years ago. Some are origin stories and others are just fascinating tales that introduce the fruit to the community. Most of the stories also inculcate good values such as kindness and generosity. In this book, multi-award-winning author Mohana Gill has chosen some of the more interesting myths about some Southeast Asian fruits and how they came to be.
