--The fruit was used by both man and women in ancient Greece and Rome, and by monks during the Middle Ages to suppress desire. Pliny the Elder noted that Athenian maidens would put the leaves under their beds during the festival of Thesmophoria to help preserve their chastity.

--In Germany, chaste tree is in common use, and it has recently become popular in the U.S. as well.
