"Also known as Devil’s apple or Devil’s turnip, it was said that anyone who pulled a mandrake out of the ground would go mad when they heard its cry. To prevent this, a dog was tied to the plant and then scared off so that it would dig up the plant as it ran away. When a mandrake is pulled out of the ground, it should be placed in a fountain immediately for a day and a night, so that every evil and contrary humour may be expelled from it." Hildegard von Bingen
