The flowers are small and green at first changing to white, the ripe fruit is reddy-orange.

Brief History: Ashwagandha has been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for over 4,000 years. The name Ashwagandha translates roughly to "the smell and strength of a horse", which may eludes to the belief that it can give one the strength of a horse in the bedroom, but is more likely to be due to the fact that the fresh root smells like horse's urine.
