According to Monk Gyatso, the secret to the pie's taste was the gooey filling. The pies are distinctive from other sweets due to their colorful appearance. There are four known colors of fruit pies: orange, purple, red, and yellow.
After Aang learned about his destiny as the Avatar, he was saddened to find that the other children did not want to play with him anymore. In an attempt to cheer up his pupil, Monk Gyatso invited Aang to "help" him with the four pies he had just baked. The two airbenders took a stance in front of the pies, created concentrated spheres of swirling air, and released them, sending the pies flying. The projectiles descended on the heads of the four other members of the Council of Elders, who were meditating. As soon as they hit the monks, several winged lemurs rushed in to feast on the desserts, making Aang and Gyatso laugh.
- When Aang and his friends met Professor Zei at the Misty Palms Oasis, Zei asked many questions, one of them being about the primary agricultural product of the Air Nomads. Pondering over the answer, Aang inquired as to whether or not fruit pies counted as an agricultural product.
- When Aang found difficulty sleeping days before the invasion, Momo told him in his hallucination that he was "just a few plums short of a fruit pie."
