The nightshade plant family, which includes tomatoes, potatoes, and bell peppers, has a long history of being associated with witchcraft and dark magic. In medieval Europe, these plants were believed to be poisonous and were often used in potions and spells by witches.

In addition, the nightshade plant family was also associated with the goddess Hecate, who was often depicted holding a torch and a key and surrounded by dogs. Hecate was the goddess of witchcraft and magic, and the nightshade plants were believed to be her sacred herbs.

During the witch hunts of the 16th and 17th centuries, the nightshade plant family was often used as evidence against accused witches. If a woman was found to have nightshade plants in her garden, it was seen as proof of her involvement in witchcraft.

The belief in the poisonous and magical properties of nightshade plants persisted well into the 18th and 19th centuries, with some people even claiming that witches could fly by rubbing a nightshade-based ointment on their skin. While these beliefs are now largely discredited, the nightshade plant family continues to be associated with witchcraft and magic in modern times.
