Long time ago, in a very remote place, there was a church which the people loved very much. They never failed to attend mass and all religious activities in that church. This church was known for its golden bell of which the people took utmost care.
One day the people were shocked by the news that a group of Moro pirates were coming to seize the golden bell. The people lost no time in hiding the bell. They buried it in front of the church.
When the pirates arrived in the place, they went directly inside the church to get the golden bell. The bell could be found nowhere inside the church. They searched for it in the houses and everywhere else in the place but in vain. This enraged the robbers. To punish the people the group beheaded anybody they met or cut their tongue for refusing to tell them where the golden bell was. Some of the people were able to flee to the mountain.
Not long after this incident, a tree was found growing on the spot where the golden bell was buried. The people watched it grow. After a few years, it bore fruits shaped like bells. As the fruit ripened, it became deeper red in color. The people found it very delicious.
