Solanum mammosum is commonly known as nipplefruit, cow's udder, or, ambiguously, "Apple of Sodom".It is an annual or tender perennial plant in the Solanaceae family,
Cow's Udder grows over 3ft tall in most frost-free areas. It produces small white flowers, followed by fascinating orange or yellow waxy fruit resembling the udder of a cow. Although the Solanaceae contains food plants like the tomato and potato, cow's udder fruits must not be eaten. Fruiting branches of cow's udder plant are very fashionable used in exotic cut-flower arrangements, and are very long lasting.
