Featured Plant of the Month
The MANDRAKE fruit was called the “love apple.” It is a member of the potato family, having a large tuberous root which is dark brown. The dark green leaves grow almost a foot long; the single-stemmed flowers are a creamy yellow with purplish veins; and the small fruit is bright red. In Bible times superstition identified it as a charm against evil spirits, and as a fertility inducer.

“Now Reuben went at the time of the wheat harvest ad found some mandrakes in the field and brought them to his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray you, some of your son’s mandrakes. But Leah answered, Is it not enough that you have taken my husband without your taking away my son’s mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Jacob shall sleep with you tonight for your son’s mandrakes.”
