First thing which comes to my mind is the well-known story of the "Mango 
miracle" which the 12th cent. Periya Purāṇam attributes to Kāraikkāl 
Ammaiyār (one of the 63 Tamil Shaiva saints, who may have lived in the 
6th century.

See the pointer to a popular modern retelling of the story (as a movie)
