Monk Fruit is cultivated in the remote mountains of Southern China. The small sub-tropical melon is also known as Luo Han Guo. According to legend, the name Monk Fruit comes from the Buddhist monks who first cultivated the fruit, nearly 800 years ago. The extract of this Chinese fruit is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar and can be used as a low-calorie sweetener.
