At this, she said to him: Does it seem little to you to have stolen my husband to want to take now also the mandrakes of my son?And Rachel said: For this reason, your husband will lie onto tonight, in exchange for the mandrakes of your son
And when Jacob came from the field at dusk, Leah came out to meet him and said: You must come with me, for I have paid for you with the mandrakes of my son.
And he slept with her that night “According to Bible scholars, Rachel, the youngest of Jacob’s two wives, wanted to possess the mandrake because it would make her more fertile and for her reputation as a stimulant sexual.

Whoever took one from the ground, would suffer the consequences of its action, having awakened the demon that lived in the root. The sound of the demons harrowing audible sounded would be so horrible that it would kill the one causing the damage. The moral of the fable was: never uproot a mandrake plant.
