Solanum Mammosum 五代同堂

  • Solanum Mammosum, also known as ‘Cow’s Udder’, ‘Nipple Fruit’, is a uniquely shaped fruit, that is commonly used in building Chinese New Year trees, due to their auspicious golden coloured fruit.
  • As the fruit has five ‘fingers’ (a similar sounding word to ‘sons’ in Cantonese), it is hoped that the house in which it is placed will be blessed with a similar amount of male offspring.
  • Another reason it has been adopted widely as a harbinger of luck is that the protrusions are thought to represent generations.
  • Five generations living harmoniously under the same roof would bring happiness, prosperity, and longevity for the family.
  • It’s a perennial plant that has lots of thorns on the leaves or stems, bears purple flowers and looks like a small tree or shrub when grown here.
  • It shares the same family with the tomato and potato.
  • All parts of the plant are poisonous.
  • However, it is regarded as a very auspicious plant for the Lunar New Year season.
  • The secret is in the fruits that are pear-shaped and has 5 protrusions.
  • These protrusions look like teats or nipples but we like to call it ‘fingers’ which in Cantonese sounds like ‘ji’ (子), meaning sons.
  • Perfect for your decoration during this festive season!
