Fruits and flowers have long been regarded as symbols of fertility across various cultures and traditions. Fruits, with their ability to bear seeds that grow into new plants, are seen as representations of the potential for growth and reproduction.
Meanwhile, flowers, with their bright colours and fragrances, are often associated with the beauty and vitality of youth, which are essential components of fertility.
In many rituals and celebrations, fruits and flowers are used as offerings or decorations to invoke the blessings of fertility, abundance, and prosperity.
Fruits and flowers are enduring symbols of the natural cycles of life, growth, and renewal that underlie the concept of fertility.
