Monk fruit is a small, green gourd that resembles a melon. It’s grown in Southeast Asia. The fruit was first used by Buddhist monks in the 13th century, hence the fruit’s unusual name.

Monk fruit has traditionally been grown on steep, forested mountains in small family orchards, so until recently there hasn’t been very much of it. For generations growers have carefully nurtured their vines then hand-picked the fruit each harvest before selling the fruit at their local market. The fruit would then be dried before being distributed throughout China and the world where it has been used in Asian communities for centuries as a low-calorie functional beverage and food ingredient.
