It is said that when Siamese army attacked Myanmar in 1787, but was unable to capture it for a while. During the siege, due to the transportation difficulties and the lack of food in the army, the general had to order the soldiers to look for wild fruits everywhere to satisfy their hunger. The soldiers found a huge and thorny fruit - durian - in the forest. When they tried to cut it open, it was surprisingly sweet and delicious. Later, when returning to Bangkok, many of the officers and soldiers took the durian kernel with them, so durian began to be widely planted in Southeast Asia.
