The Solanum mammosum, known as nipplefruit, titty fruit[http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/nipple_fruit.htm], 'Cows Udder, or Apple of Sodom''', is an annual to perennial plant in the Solanaceae family, part of the Solanum or nightshade genus, and a close relative of the tomato. The poisonous fruit is native South America, but has been naturalized in the Greater Antilles, Central America and Caribbean. The fruit is grown for ornamental purposes, in part because of its resemblance to a human breast. It is reputed to have medicinal use in various treatments, from athlete's foot [http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6882/1/10] to irritability and restlessness [http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/n/nighwo06.html], and is sometimes used as a detergent. It is imported to Taiwan for use as a religious offering.
