These folk tales are not without their touch of magic. Many surprising transformations occur. For instance, fruit trees mysteriously sprout on the burial grounds of loved ones whose distinct qualities or characteristics are manifest in the fruits themselves. Or heroes and heroines that abruptly meet a violent death reassure those they have left behind that they will continue to live on through the fruits they have become. - Nent Sta. Romana-Cruz
