Mango: Its History, A Burmese Myth plus Food & Cocktail Recipes
A Burmese myth states the fruit originally began as the daughter of Surya Deva, a Sun God, wedded to a king on earth. Jealous of her happiness, an evil enchantress vowed to make her life miserable. To escape, the daughter took the shape of a lotus flower which the king loved and cherished. Incensed, the enchantress burnt the flower to a crisp… from the ashes grew a mango tree. When the branches bore fruit, one fell to the king’s feet and out came his wife whom he recognized and loved.
